Pubdate: [Sat, 01 Mar 1997] Source: Skagit Valley Herald (WA) Author: Gretchen Harris Thank you so much for printing Allison Bigelow's article on hemp. She is one of a few people that are willing to spread this knowledge. It appears that your newspaper is willing as well. Hemp has an enormous future potential. Henry Ford knew it, Thomas Jefferson knew it, George Washington knew it and now all your readers know it too. It is too valuable to waste and if we remain ignorant we will not be able to compete. Germany is at least five years ahead of us. Thank you again for your time. Gretchen Harris, president Cascade Hemp Supply Inc. Vancouver, Wash.
