In the 1770s, George Washington was a farmer who understood the benefits of growing industrial hemp, one of the most sustainable, multi-purpose crops in the world used for textiles, food, and fuel.  According to today's laws, George would be arrested and thrown into jail for growing an illegal crop. Help HoodLamb Free George and bring back crucial agricultural and manufacturing jobs to American soil.

A few questions and answers on #FreeGeorge

If George Washington were alive today he would be in jail. Why?
Because George Washington grew industrial hemp.

Why did he grow hemp? 
- Hemp is one of the world’s strongest natural fibers second only to spider silk.
- Hemp enriches rather than depletes the soil by shedding its leaves throughout the season, creating a rich compost.
- Hemp uses 4x less water than cotton when processed for textiles.
- Hemp requires no pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers to grow.
- Hemp helps to purify the soil, removing heavy metals.
- Hemp is considered a carbon negative raw material because its growth actually produces an outlet of CO2 from the earth’s atmosphere.
- Hemp is free from allergens.

Why is hemp illegal?
Hemp is an innocent bystander of the failed war on drugs.
Hemp has been lumped in with marijuana as a Schedule 1 controlled substance even though it contains no psychoactive components and is only used for industrial purposes.

Why does HoodLamb care?
We are the original hemp tailors. We produce all of our apparel with hemp. We believe strongly that hemp farming and manufacturing is the answer to rejuvenating depressed farming communities, and to bringing HoodLamb production to the United States.

Our rally chant is #FreeGeorge.
Sign the petition, bring hemp farming to the USA.

It’s what the founding fathers intended.
