Une économie de $75 millions
Résumé en Français : Les consommateurs d'Amérique du Nord ont dépensé 75 millions de dollars en 97 dans des produits en chanvre contre 3 millions en 93 selon John Roulac, créateur de " Hempbrokers ", société US fournissant des semences de chanvre (chènevis).

AUTHOR: Leslie Guttman, The San Francisco Chronicle DATE: Tuesday, 1 June 1999, at 12:21 p.m. In 1997, North Americans spent $75 million on hemp products, up from$3 million in 1993, according to John Roulac, founder of Hempbrokers,an international hemp-seed product supplier in Sebastopol. He estimates that annual sales could approach $1billion within the next five years or so.(…) Marijuana, hemp's botanical cousin in the cannabis family, containsabout 5 to 20 percent THC; hemp usually contains less than 1 percent,way too little to get a person high, say hemp activists and numerousscientists.(…) Bob Weiner, spokesman for National Drug Policy Director Barry McCaffrey,says the government fears that legalizing hemp would send the wrongmessage about drugs to young people. He adds that law enforcement finds it difficult to tell the difference between hemp and marijuana"from the sky" (via helicopter) when it comes to pinpointing illegalfields for eradication."We're open to new research . . . we have no objection to hemp as a product, we just don't want to see a drug culture come in throughthe back door," says Weiner.(…) "Sugar is dead," Thielen says of Hawaii's ex-cash cow and the state's inability to compete with the bargain-bin prices of sugar in the global marketplace. "Every day that passes, and we do not allow farmers togrow industrial hemp, means agricultural workers are unemployed. Andour land lies fallow."Other states are pushing hard for hemp. Last month, North Dakota becamethe first state to make growing and selling industrial hemp legal.(Growers will apply for DEA permits to do so.)Pro-hemp legislation has either passed or is brewing in at least 11additional states. (…)The activists point to Canada as a model of what could be. The country legalized hemp last year, and about 6,200 acres were planted, yieldinga crop that sold for approximately $450,000, according to Robert L'Ecuyer,general manager of Kenex Ltd., Canada's largest hemp grower and processor.L'Ecuyer says he doesn't know yet how much hemp will be planted acrossCanada in 1999, but it may be five or six times as much as last year.

 

Un musée du chanvre dans le Kentucky. A défaut de pouvoir cultiver du chanvre, les agriculteurs conduits par l'acteur Woody Harrelson ont ouvert un musée dédié à la culture du chanvre

But a movement has been under way for several years to reintroduce hemp to Kentucky as an agricultural commodity. To help educate people about the benefits of this versatile plant, the Kentucky hemp Growers Cooperative hasopened its museum and library in Versailles at 149 Lexington Street. Aribbon cutting ceremony for the museum was held on June 4. kyhempmuse@aol.com
