      Over the last 10 to 15 years, there has been an organized attempt in Kent
      County to increase production, and marketing of hemp. This is the
      industrial type with insufficient amount of tetrehydrocannabino l (THC) to
      be used as a drug. Few people realize that there is 'industrial' hemp, and
      "fun" hemp. Hundreds of acres of the industrial variety have been legally
      grown in the county, but there has been unsatisfactory inroads to the US
      market to sell the raw or finished product.

      Perhaps they can be convinced to make 1812 tents.

      But seriously, folks, the argument does make sense, as one of the causes of
      the war. But, even if that is so, and "they" are hiding this bit of history
      from us, I don't see how it strengthens the argument to legalize, ahem, hemp

      these days, with sails and cordage being made of other things.
