Those who wish to legalize industrial hemp highlight that the plant has the possibility of generating a ton of revenue for U.S. cultivators, making the best out of this country’s economy and agricultural industry. Although legalizing marijuana is more controversial, the industrial hemp activism is more important for the United States as a whole, especially from an economic standpoint. Now, let’s take a look at four economic predictions by those who have been researching industrial hemp:

Great for farmers
U.S. consumers buy $500 million of hemp products per year. The products, which are brought in from other countries, consist of health and beauty products, clothing, food, as well as sundry environmentally safe consumables. If cultivators in the United States were given the ability to grow industrial hemp, all those dollars would be a part of the American economy rather than to the economies of other countries.

2. More Jobs
Industrial hemp would likely create jobs in an industry where they are heavily needed. Agrarian economies took the largest impact in the recession over the last couple of years, and many regions still have not bounced back from the loss of jobs. If industrial hemp were allowed, there would be a stable agrarian economy in rural areas that would provide jobs for many.

3. Keeping Cash in the U.S.
Hemp is going to be a growing industry for a long time. In 2011, the United States brought it $11.5 million in raw hemp material in order to make goods. This is four times the market value that was brought in just a decade ago. More and more products are being made from raw hemp materials. As a result, hemp imports will become increasingly expensive until we begin to grow our own hemp.

4. Profit
The market outlook for industrial hemp is positive, according to economists from the USDA and various land grant universities. They have been studying the possibilities for hemp in various states and discovered that outlook is positive everywhere. Of course, there would be ups and downs, but overall, hemp is an evidently profitable plant.

  1. There are multiple advantages of growing hemp but the really stupid politicians we have will never see that!

  2. If we legalize hemp, we could grow a car like Henry Ford wanted to do. What would happen to the steel industry, you see how they reacted to the tariffs Trump wanted. It’s all about money the steel industry would go under.
