Fifth generation hemp-farmer, Noble Burnett, and his beautiful, unconventional daughter, Kate, are struggling to keep their farm intact through the throes of the Great Depression. They discover to their dismay, however, that the failing U.S. economy is the least of their problems. A powerful anti-hemp lobby is at large. With recent breakthroughs in hemp-processing, and rumors of Henry Ford's 'hemp-mobile' materializing, hemp is now an imminent threat to Big Oil and its allies. The war on hemp begins, wrought with coincidence: The repeal of Prohibition leaves its disciples without a cause; and the vilified drug, marijuana, is falsely equated with industrial hemp. A frustrated prohibitionist, Harry Anslinger, is appointed chief of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics; and Prohibition is back - hemp, tagged as marijuana, its new target! The Burnetts' loss becomes the reader's outrage, as "HEMP" uncovers an ugly American secret: Acting solely to further their own interests, a conspiracy of powerful, greedy tycoons and their fanatical, federal pawn systematically outlawed the industrial hemp plant, and with it, the world's greenest, cheapest, alternative source to petro-chemical and tree-paper products! ...And got away with it - 72 years, and counting! Based on actual events, and documented Congressional testimony. "TIMELY AND RELEVANT - END THE DEBATE! THE ANSWER TO OUR ENERGY WOES IS, AND ALWAYS HAS BEEN, HEMP!"
