Hemp use in America dates to early colonial times

The Dalles Chronicle
Marijuana use in America dates to the earliest colonial times, when the King of England in 1619 required residents of his Virginia Colony to grow hemp – a taller form of marijuana plant with a low amount of the active ingredient THC.

Hemp was used in making rope and fibers. Production waned after the Civil War, when newer materials were found for rope and fiber.
