HELP REINTRODUCE HEMP
Tell you friends and family about the potential of hemp as a sustainable plant, pass on the address of this web site and teach yourself the subject (see links)
Print off pages of this web site and pass amongst friends
Ask your local library to invest in your favourite books and articles
Set up a simple street campaign to help re-educate the public - generate some simple to the point leaflets.
The CLCIA may be willing to provide you with some leaflets for this purpose
WRITE TO YOUR MP
It would be better to write about single specific issues rather than asking 'why on earth is hemp illegal?' You might for example like to write expressing your concerns about global warming and the risks associated with nuclear energy. You could suggest that hemp biomass is a much safer and more economical means of producing electricity and recommend that your MP reads a copy of the FCDA report by d'Oudney and d'Oudney (1997)
START A PETITION
DEMAND the re-legalization of non-psychoactive hemp, outlining the main reasons why.
USE YOUR CONSUMER INFLUENCE
Purchase hemp products where possible. An increasing demand will stimulate an increase in supply. (The CLCIA have a long list of suppliers). To similar effect, try to boycott products produced by polluting industries.
Consider obtaining a licence for growing hemp from the Home Office. There is much potential for business - there is a huge range of products you could consider producing (eco-industry).
