This is one of my favorite videos. Hemp For Victory was created in 1942 by the Department of Agriculture. It explains the uses of hemp and was shown to encourage farmers to grow hemp to help the war effort during WWII because imported fibers were in short supply.
After the war it was hidden, and virtually unknown, until the 1980s. In fact, the U.S. Department of Agriculture library and the Library of Congress told those who asked that no movie pertaining to hemp was made by the USDA or any branch of the U.S. government.
In 1984 Jack Herer received the only known copy of the film; in 1989 two VHS copies were recovered and donated to the Library of Congress by Jack Herer, Maria Farrow, Carl Packard. Since then this film has been available worldwide via the internet.
It’s time to bring back this plant that can end our dependence on fossil fuels and fossil fuel based products; it’s time to bring back the plant that can be made into 50,000 products without harming the earth.
Hemp is on the way back. Hemp for Health ~ Hemp for Industry ~ Hemp for Victory.
