    Name: The History of Hemp
    Date: January 12, 2019
    Time: 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM EST
    Event Description:
    Join Clinton for The History of Hemp - in this class Clinton will be talking about one of the most significant plants for mankind. 

    It is astonishing to see how, eco-friendly, and widespread the uses of hemp can be. Hemp was probably the earliest plant that was cultivated for textile fiber, which dates back to 8,000 B.C. It has played rolls in history surrounding war, religion, exploration, racism, the industrial revolution of the 1930’s, and the drug culture of modern day. 

    Hemp has over 25,000 diverse uses which can help change people’s lives, while helping save on the pocket book, and re-balance the Earth’s ecosystem. Find out how the Hemp industry deteriorated and was demonized to such an extent in the 21st century, even after so many successful and productive years of use and industry. Learn who all was behind one of the largest take downs in American history, and why to this day strong lobbyist still manage to keep the growth of this valuable crop banned and the public disillusioned, and fearful. 

    In this hour and a half class we will explore the history of this dynamic plant, and how it has contributed to shaping our history, and why it seriously is a CASH crop for humanity and the future of this planet.
