George Washington grew hemp. Thomas Jefferson drafted both the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution on hemp paper. There is no tree or plant on Earth capable of producing as much paper per acre as hemp & naturally acid-free. The oldest printed paper in existence is a 100 percent hemp Chinese text dated to 770 AD. 1 acre of hemp makes 4X the paper as an acre of trees. Hemp paper is recyclable about 7 or 8 times, compared to 3 times for tree paper. http://hemp.ronmaurer.com
