Why is the massively valuable and versatile hemp plant illegal in the United States?
Making hemp illegal:
1. Provides make-work for a vast army of "law enforcers" who then are available to be used for other social control work
2. Protects the market share of numerous well organized lobbies: alcohol makers, plastics and chemical manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, and cotton growers (still a powerful economic force in America 200 + years after the Civil War.)
3. Gives fascist minded politicians yet another way to control the population
