With Mellon in office, the elimination Hemp from the open market would have a guiding hand. Why would the owner of Gulf Oil want to remove hemp from the open markets? One acre/yr. of hemp produces 250 gals. of nature-friendly, BIODIESEL. That takes money out of the big oil\'s pockets.
Big oil, Chemical, Pharmaceutical, and the Cotton Industries benefited greatly after Hemp was eliminated.
The passage of the "Marihuana Tax Act in 1937" allowed our Government tax a crop that doesn\'t leave the farm. They were forced to buy their fuel needs from the big oil\'s refineries, like the Gulf Oil\'s refinery.
With the addition of state and federal taxes added on to the price of the diesel, it made for an expense to the farmer, whereas before, it was free for the making.
