Editor of the Reformer:

In reference to your recent editorial "The next agricultural boon?"
(Feb. 1). Not only "all our trading partners can grow these crops (but
U.S. farmers can't)," that includes communist Chinese farmers and
America's largest foreign debt is with China.

It's time to re-introduce hemp as a component of U.S. agriculture.
I've been purchasing hemp food products for nearly two decades but the
hemp is all imported and I'd rather purchase those products with
American grown hemp.

A sane argument to continue banning hemp cultivation doesn't
