This film really offers insight into how we are controlled by our governments vs we the people saying what we can do. Hemp could be growing on farms throughout the U.S. for food and for other materials. Not to mention Native Americans could be growing on everyone of their reservations vs having casinos and truly offering there communities a self sustaining lifestyle. This Hemp Film Video is in the public domain. 

Hemp for Victory is a black-and-white United States government film made during World War II, explaining the uses of hemp, encouraging farmers to grow as much as possible. The film was made to encourage farmers to grow hemp for the war effort because other industrial fibers, often imported from overseas, were in short supply. The film shows a history of hemp and hemp products, how hemp is grown, and how hemp is processed into rope, cloth, cordage, and other products.

Before 1989, the film was relatively unknown and the United States Department of Agriculture library and the Library of Congress told all interested parties that no such movie was made by the USDA or any branch of the US government. Two VHS copies were recovered and donated to the Library of Congress on 19 May 1989 by Mia Farrow, Carl Packard, and Jack Herer.

The only known copy in 1976 was a 3/4" broadcast quality copy of the film that was originally obtained by William Conde in 1976 from a reporter for the Miami Herald and the Ethiopian Zion Coptic Church of Jamaica. It was given in trust that it would be made available to as many as possible.

Tip iemand over dit artikel:


Ik denk niet dat je ooit ophoudt met geven. Ik tenminste niet. Ik denk dat het altijd door blijft gaan. En het gaat er niet om dat je een cheque kunt uitschrijven. Het gaat erom dat je iemands leven kunt raken.

Oprah Winfrey, Amerikaans televisiepresentatrice
