Claimed to be the most beneficial "illicit" drug on the American market today. Many people are unaware that it still can be imported to the United States and sold to the American consumer as long as it wasn't cultivated in the United States of America. Since current government bars us from current research of the hemp plant, we always have he past to help us be informed about the world's most medically and industrially beneficial plant. The green plant that could! Research was conducted by Trevor Clinger, who has researched the hemp plant in preparedness for it to become the largest and most popular commodity in the world, leaving corn and coffee in the dust. Mr. Clinger has a Bachelor's Degree of Business Management from Tiffin University.
Clinger Does a bang up job discussing what hemp is, and how it tried to become a major industry but ultimately failed. He doesa great start to finish wrap up in less than 20 minutes so this would be great as a quickframework for a students paper or report, or to just help you understand how hemp evolved into various products and the variety of uses it has. Robinson works well with Clinger's prose, and I could listen to him do a full report on this topic without getting bored. He does a fine job.
Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like mewill decide based on my review.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, I would highly recommend this book to anyone searching to find out why we first used this plant when George Washington was our 1st president but now all of a sudden it's useless!!!! Spread the word about this book!!!

The author did an amazing job at talking about the history of the hemp plant. I didn't know how important hemp was for the historical development of the United States of America. This audiobook helped me realize, that without hemp, America wouldn't be what it is today.
Interesting but very little info beyond a few factoids. More time spent telling you to buy product from author than on benefits of hemp
