- Sails and clothing.
1619, United States. A law was passed decreeing the growth of the hemp plant. It’s primary use? To be used as sails and clothing.
As for the first, but Hemp was used to make parachutes in WW2!
- As Legal Tender
You know that thing about using stamps as legal tender? Well at one point after the 1619 legalisation, you could also buy a pint of milk used weed.
- Killing Cancer Cells
This one is probably obvious, but I’m including it as it’s still amazing to think that marijuana (and cannabinoids) can be used to fight cancer cells.
- Moving the Easter Island statues.
Yeah, hemp rope was used to carry these heads through the countryside. Using three hemp ropes, 18 people were able to move the statues 328 feet!
