I probably should have worded it I don't know why the hell their wouldn't be enough complaints about the stupidity of making industrial hemp illegal. I get the fact alot of people who wanted to profit off of it being illegal made sure it was that way.

Industrial Hemp should be a lesson how our government actually works(ie big money has alot of say, even when the results might not be beneficial to the masses).
