End hemp apartheid


To the Editor:

This is an open letter to President Barack Obama.

I’m writing because I’m greatly concerned about certain issues involving fossils fuels. Projects like offshore oil drilling off of the mid-Atlantic states and Alaska, pipelines from the tar sands of Canada, and oil and gas development in the wilds of Utah are the wrong direction for our country. Legalizing industrial hemp production will offer a greener and cleaner way for our country to grow. At least try it first before the other projects.
