"The Gospel of Hemp, How Hemp Can Save Our World" is the story of one man's enlightenment about how hemp can save the economy of the United States, and our World.
In 1916, the USDA published Bulletin No. 404, a report on using hemp hurds as a paper-making material. The bulletin proclaims that: “Without a doubt, hemp will continue to be one of the staple agricultural crops of the United States.” The report also warns that: “Our forests are being cut three times faster than they grow.” It finds that (over a 20-year period) 10,000 acres of hemp can produce the same amount of paper as 40,500 acres of trees. The test results are so favorable that USDA Bulletin #404 is printed on paper made from hemp! "The Gospel of Hemp" explains why a crop that was hailed as a "one of the staple agricultural crops of The United States" in a U.S. government report was deceptivley made essentially illegal in 1937. The time has come for America and the world to correct this deception and injustice for the future of our planet.
About the author
Alan Archuleta was about to graduate from one of the leading agricultural schools on the planet (The Univerity of California, Davis) when a neighbor gave him a book about a plant that changed his life. It was a life-changing moment for him, because he knew that NONE of this information was being taught at the university. "The Emperor Wears No Clothes" by Jack Herer opened Alan's eyes to the important role hemp had played in the founding of America, why it was outlawed, and how hemp can save the American ecomomy...and our world! Jack's book inspired this one. This is the story of this life-change, and part of the author's mission to spread "The Gospel of Hemp".
