The U.S. is the only industrialized country that banned hemp while consuming the world’s largest volume of hemp products: Total sales of products to the U.S. containing hemp are estimated around $450 million. Australians and Canadians use hemp domestically and export it as food, animal feed, and biofuel. So do the Chinese, who have cornered the market on the uses of hemp fiber. To its financial detriment, the U.S. lags behind in a lucrative agricultural market.
