Lack of Political/Legal Information and Context[edit]

It appears that this article has been largely developed by hemp advocates who are dismissive of the political and legal objections to hemp, thus leaving the entire article devoid of any real discussion of these decisive issues (except for a couple of paragraphs of "conspiracy theory" about the reasons for the U.S. outlawing hemp, not mentioning any of the normally cited, and most obvious, reasons).

Shocking lack of objectivity and relevance in this article, as a consequence. Legalizing hemp (for "industrial" use) has become one of the key schemes used by marijuana-legalization advocates, as a way to chip away at anti-marijuana laws (which typically outlaw hemp, a variant of marijuana).

Clearly not a thorough, and fully honest, objective coverage of the subject.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Zxtxtxz (talkcontribs) 22:32, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

US House Bill 525[edit]

Could it include the current legislation that is moving through the US Congress? There are bills like S.134 and H.R.525 that would enable article readers to quickly track the American lawmakers and the sentiment of the US Government.

Wikipedia is WP:NOTNEWS nor is it place for advocacy, per WP:NOTADVOCACY. Many bills are proposed and go no where - there are not encyclopedia worthy, necessarily. Jytdog (talk) 01:28, 12 September 2015 (UTC)

I believe the whole text about hemp is really well informed and has tones of information about the plant. The only thing that I would like to suggest for the improvement is to have more information about hemp fibers, I did not see much about it. And also talk a little bit more about the legalization in the world since is still a tabu for our society. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:48, 3 October 2015 (UTC)
