HEP should be created with the wisdom of pro hemp congresspeople i.e. Barney Frank, Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich, as well as hempsters Richard M. Davis here at the USA Hemp Museum, Jack Herer, Chris Conrad, Dana Beal, Attorney Bruce Margolin, Dr. Lester Grinspoon, Willie Nelson, Montel Williams, Tommy Chong, Woody Harrelson, Marijuana Policy Project, Vote Hemp, North American Industrial Hemp Council, Hemp Industries Association, Bill Maher, Bill Press and other hemp activist, entertainers, organizations, businesses, researchers, journalists and farmers to co-create positive results. Let's not fail to create a place for the customers to join in the building process.
There are hundreds of thousands of people in jail for interacting with a plant.
