Hemp vs. Marijuan
6 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This thoughtful and well researched film is not about decriminalizing marijuana, nor is it a documentary film about drug use.

This film focuses on the production of HEMP, as a fiber plant, its uses as such, and makes very clear distinctions between the hemp plant and its "cousin", marijuana.

The history of hemp is well portrayed... including its use in rope making, clothing, etc. Emphasis is placed on the plants usefulness in the WWII efforts to provide rope literally, miles of it, and how quickly after WWII the plant became illegal.

The film is very balanced... e.g. NO EFFORT was made to demonize Dupont, Corp. ...other films do this...(citing the invention of nylon as a major factor in the criminalization of hemp)etc. but rather, most of the film centers on the usefulness of the plant and the issue of the confusion in government in the "political treatment" over this plant as a "crop" or a "drug".

Well written, informative, and focused on farming of Hemp as a natural resource that very useful in reduction of deforestation, etc.

This is NOT a film to watch if you are looking for a pro-legalization/decriminalization of marijuana as a drug. The film does not even go there at all, despite some well known actors and advocates.
