WATCH: Patagonia Lays Out The History of Hemp

By

Patagonia has been using hemp in their clothes since 1997 and wants to get the rest of us up to speed on why the miracle fiber was deemed illegal in 1970 and why it could vital to a the future of America:

“Natural. Misunderstood. Legal. This is the story of hemp in the United States. A forbidden fiber in the U.S. since 1970, hemp has taken the heat for almost five decades. Until the Farm Bill passed in December of 2018, hemp was federally illegal to grow for commercial purposes, making it risky for businesses to invest in new crop that was incorrectly classified as a drug. Hemp can be grown without pesticides or herbicides, needs no irrigation, and requires less fertilizer than other crops. One of the most durable natural fibers on the planet, it can be turned into a surprisingly soft, light and breathable fabric. That’s why Patagonia started putting it into their products in 1997.
