LAS VEGAS, NV–(Marketwired – Oct 21, 2015) – Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP) executives today announced the need for “Educational Press Releases” on industrial hemp, the plant which has been used for thousands of years in all major areas of commerce until the 1930s. The versatility of the hemp plant in modern American use has been distorted due to vague distinctions from its cousin, marijuana. Hemp, Inc. executives feel their shareholders, potential shareholders and all others should be informed of “industry material events” to keep them informed of hemp legislation and rapidly changing laws in the industry. Specifically, up-to-the-minute legislation on hemp laws in North Carolina and the Southeastern United States.
Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP) said, “It’s not that often that a ‘black market’ industry becomes legalized. That happens, maybe, once every century. For years, there has been so much misinformation, negative propaganda and down right lies by the government. Misinformation has inculcated itself into the educational, judicial, law enforcement and medical systems. For these reasons, we are doing what we call ‘Educational Press Releases’. You have to remember, it’s been over 70 years of misinformation that has trickled down to legislators, scientists, educators, students, nutritionists, industrialists, farmers, medical, rehabilitation, consumers and more. Most of the other industrialized countries around the world are already knowledgeable on the hemp plant and the industrial hemp industry.”
According to Perlowin, Hemp, Inc. will release “Educational Press Releases” to report what main stream media is now covering through newspapers, magazines, radio, television, articles, etc. The media has done a good job in reporting the educational facts on the terms industrial hemp, what is hemp, and what is the difference between hemp and marijuana. “We will reprint those articles,” says Perlowin, “such as the ones we are mentioning in this release.”
“While valid arguments could be made supporting and opposing the idea of hemp as a legal crop, overall, the agricultural community seems to view the potential of commercial hemp plant in a positive light. As research continues, a number of advantages to growing hemp are becoming clear.
The argument for and against commercial hemp production continues to rage across the country, but since the 2014 farm bill cleared the way for the legal research and testing of hemp production under controlled circumstances, interest in growing hemp, at least as an alternative crop, has increased considerably.

From an economic standpoint, hemp does not currently offer itself as one of the most profitable crops to grow. Demand for raw hemp, while substantial, is much less than for most commodity crops.
The Hemp Industries Association reports that Americans bought about $625 million worth of hemp products last year, including clothing, building materials, food made with hemp seeds, and assorted other hemp-related products, according to Eric Steenstren, the association’s executive director.” (Posted on Southwest Farm Press on 10-16-2015)
