Hemp For Victory! – Cannabis Knowledge
🎥In this episode on Hiker Cat Channel we share “Hemp for Victory,” a black-and-white United States government film made during World War II and released in 1942, explaining the uses of hemp, encouraging farmers to grow as much as possible.
Hemp has been serving our cultures for thousands of years.
[Did you know that] “During World War II, the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937 was lifted briefly to allow for hemp fiber production to create ropes for the U.S. Navy but after the war hemp reverted to its illegal status [?] ”
