Hemp For Victory

Hemp for Victory was a video created by the US government in the 1940s that promoted hemp as a crop that would aid our country in the war.
This video was put into "hiding" after hemp was demonized by the government, an act paid for by the big oil companies that saw hemp as a threat to big business. Jack Herer, the "Emperor of Hemp," brought the video back into the public eye after some investigating in the Library of Congress record.

Here is a compressed Hemp for Victory video found on YouTube. Enjoy.

Jack Herer also wrote the book The Emperor Wears No Clothes that explains hemp's amazing qualities and its many uses.
