Blending history with current events, "Hemp And The Rule Of Law" traces the crop's legendary past in U.S. agriculture and chronicles the politically-charged debate to return the crop to American farmers.
I started this film in 1996, when Canada and most western countries made the distinction between hemp and marijuana, and once again started to grow the crop. The film was finished in 2004, and graphic information was added after that as developments were made on the issue. The U.S. finally legalized hemp on December 20, 2018.
