Florida Hemp Processing: The Florida legislature has shut down hemp again this year. The house bill put hemp in hemp prison for 5 years at the University. The Senate bill had no appropriations in it so they put it in the Appropriations committee, the worst committee where it won't get heard.
The Florida governor ran HCA/Columbia hospital system that was charged with the worst corporate fine in history (1999) for Medicare fraud. He was retired by the Board and came to Florida where he built a chain of walk-in clinics. The pharmaceutical industry fights hemp badly.
Bob Clayton gave an hour long interview on hemp and hempcrete on WMNF radio's permaculture hour in Tampa. They want to do it again so maybe Bob can help build their advocacy on the radio. WMNF is listener-supported so they can do alternative programming.

Press Release for Hemp Picks LLC Opening
Demonstrating the industrial value of hemp in Parkersburg
The Point Park Marketplace has a new business that set up shop on April 20th in downtown Parkersburg. Robby Kerr and J. Morgan Leach are passionate entrepreneurs who launched Hemp Picks to educate the locals about industrial hemp and really demonstrate the industrial value of a once standard and vital crop in this country.
Hemp Picks will provide a venue for those interested in hemp to shop for sustainable products or learn more about growing industrial hemp in West Virginia.
Studying cannabis industries and assisting a variety of businesses, Robby Kerr is knowledgeable about what this new industry can offer West Virginia. “There is an educational gap in the distinction between hemp and marijuana”, Robby said, “and I enjoy showing the variety of sustainable products being developed for everyday use. People are shocked that such a valuable and versatile crop was prohibited during a majority of the 20th century”.
The Point Park Marketplace is fostering a festive environment for Parkersburg, and the interest in hemp is growing for the area. The store will offer art, educational materials, soap, musical instruments and accessories, foods, clothing, bags, tinctures, and lotions. For more information, visit their website at www.hemp-picks.com or email email@example.com.

The Seed and Fiber of Wealth: A New Documentary Film Chronicling the History of Hemp Production in Kentucky
LEXINGTON, KY – Witnessing History, LLC, a producer of documentary films on Kentucky and American history, and Hemp Highway of Kentucky, LLC, the organizer and promoter of the tour route through central Kentucky chronicling the history of hemp production in the State, have entered into a collaborative agreement to produce a fifty-six minute documentary film for public and cable television on the history of hemp production in Kentucky.
No crop was more significant to the growth and development of Kentucky than hemp. An annual plant of Asian origin, hemp was brought to Kentucky from Virginia by the earliest pioneer settlers. Far from centers of civilization, those pioneers raised hemp in order to use its fibers to make clothes, headgear, paper, rope, blankets, bags, floor coverings and other articles. Its seeds were used to make lamp oil, butter, flour, and chicken feed. As Kentucky became more and more settled hemp became the Commonwealth’s greatest cash crop. New Orleans became Kentucky’s principal marketplace for hemp as it was for whiskey. In the early Nineteenth Century, the fledgling United States Navy outfitted many of its ships with halyards and rigging made exclusively from Kentucky hemp ropes; the sails, likewise, were mostly made of Kentucky hemp. The vast production of Kentucky hemp thus played a role in America’s victory over Britain in the War of 1812. Up until the 1850s, Kentucky produced most of the hemp grown in America.
Among Kentucky’s most influential people were those whose fortunes were tied to the production of hemp. Lexingtonians John Wesley Hunt, James Morrison, Robert S. Todd, Thomas and Peter January, Benjamin Gratz, Thomas and Nathaniel Hart, John Brand, and Henry Clay were either very large hemp producers or manufacturers of hemp products, or both. The wealth they garnered in the heyday of hemp production contributed immensely to the growth of Transylvania University, among other central Kentucky institutions. Lexington became the epicenter of the hemp industry, producing vast amounts of cloth, rope, and sheeting from hemp. By the end of the Civil War, and with the emancipation of slaves, the use of hemp fell into a decline. Hemp would become a subject of nostalgia; noted Kentucky novelist, James Lane Allen, would write about the raising of hemp in romantic – and near poetic – terms in his 1900 novel, A Tale of the Kentucky Hemp Fields. Although revived during World War II, the raising of hemp in America had ceased altogether thereafter largely due to federal government interference. Hemp, however, is now on its way back!
The documentary film will chronicle the remarkable story of hemp production in Kentucky and will be magnificently illustrated with period portraiture and early photographs of prominent hemp producers, as well as mid-Nineteenth Century photography of the vast hemp fields and those who labored in them. Footage of sites critical to the story of hemp production will be filmed in many of the counties in central Kentucky. The dependence of hemp production upon the institution of slavery will be carefully chronicled. The film will end with an examination of hemp’s resurgence. It will take approximately fifteen months to produce the film.
“I am thrilled to collaborate with Daniel Isenstein and Hemp Highway of Kentucky in the production of such a film. It is a film I have long wanted to produce and this collaboration with Daniel Isenstein and Hemp Highway of Kentucky has made it possible,” said Kent Masterson Brown, President and Content Developer for Witnessing History, LLC and Witnessing History Education Foundation, Inc. of Lexington. Witnessing History has produced nine award-winning films that are regularly broadcast on KET and other American and foreign networks, including: “I Remember The Old Home Very Well:” The Lincolns in Kentucky, Daniel Boone and the Opening of the American West, Henry Clay and the Struggle for the Union, The Civil War in Kentucky, and Bourbon and Kentucky: A History Distilled.
"I cannot put into words how humbled and excited I am to be working with master storyteller Kent Masterson Brown and Witnessing History on a film that shows how hemp weaves all through the Kentucky historical narrative," said Daniel Isenstein, President of the Hemp Highway of Kentucky, LLC. The Hemp Highway of Kentucky is dedicated to expanding tourism opportunities throughout the Bluegrass region by exploring Kentucky's fertile hemp history.

The Wonder Seed:
The Wonder Seed Wins 1st International Awards!
Newport Beach, CA – May 16, 2017 – The Wonder Seed, the most effective line of hemp seed oil skin and hair care products, has just won their first international awards with The Beauty Shortlist in the UK! Their Hemp Conditioner won Best Conditioner and their Hemp Hand Cream Won the Editor’s Choice Award for Best Hand Cream. “Brands from 38 different countries entered so it’s an exciting win since we were competing with some of the world's top brands” says The Wonder Seed Co-Founder, Theresa Hellings. “I am privileged to be educating the world from this platform! Save the world and look good doing it! When I saw what our hemp seed oil body care did for my skin and hair, I started eating hemp every day too so I could get it from the inside out! It’s the most nutritious thing you can eat or put on your skin.”
Hemp seed oil, in all Wonder Seed products, is the most nutritious oil on Earth. It has a long list of vitamins (A, B1, B2, B3, B6, C, D, E), minerals (including magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc), amino acids (all 10 humans need), and a perfect ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6 for human absorption. This remarkable oil provides nourishment and protection deep at the cellular level, providing excellent healing, rejuvenating and moisturizing benefits:
At The Wonder Seed, all products are designed to give you an extreme and dramatic improvement that you’ll notice after using only once or twice. The fifteen item product line ships worldwide from Amazon.com
Hemp, if put to all its uses, replaces toxic plastics and water-wasting cotton fabrics. Hemp paper would save trees. Hemp crops actually nourish the soil instead of leaching nutrients from the soil and they grew hemp after the Chernobyl nuclear accident to clean the radiation. Ford knew all this when he built his hemp car which also ran on hemp biofuel.
