    Sadly, it is the cotton and paper lobby in this country that prevents growing of hemp from being legal in this country. These industries would loose market share if hemp were legal to grow, since hemp requires much less chemicals and is therefore cheaper to produce (as stated in the article).

    Absolute shame, it is. It's a good bet that at least some farmers could use a cheaper crop that does not harm the ecosystem they farm in. The nation would certainly benefit if mainstream agriculture took part in the hemp trade, if only to reduce water pollution and the drain on groundwater supplies.
