Great video Zelana Montminy! There are so many outdated Draconian policies in the USA regarding HEMP. The TTB currently will not permit HEMP graphics or the word HEMP in a brand name or common name on a liquor bottle label eventhough first President George Washington grew HEMP and declared, 'Make the most of the Indian HEMP seed and sow it everywhere!" while third President Thomas Jefferson declared "Hemp is of first necessity to the wealth & protection of the country." It is argued that the first US flag was made from HEMP by Betsy Ross. The US government OWNS the patent on cannabis cures which contradicts a Schedule 1 controlled substance. US patent # 6630507.

Nice piece. One change...Hemp is actually a cultivar not a variety. A cultivar has been selected and cultivated by humans over a period of time, where as a variety was made in nature. Hemp is a cultivar of cannabis - meaning humans actually worked with the cannabis to create a kind of cannabis that has very low THC. "The main difference between cultivar and variety is that variety grows wild, while cultivar is grown in cultivated gardens." -Ask.com The term industrial hemp is used to connotate hemp that is grown much like corn or wheat and has less than .03% THC. Marijuana or Medical grade cannabis has 3% or higher THC. No one would ever get high from eating or smoking hemp, as you pointed out. Thanks for the good hemp news!
