I asked this awhile ago but got few replies and felt it was relevant with the talk of Obama's energy plans.
Industrial Hemp doesn't have enough THC to get you high, just a headache.
It can be used for food, fuel, clothing & textiles, rope, paper, cosmetics, paints & cleaners, building materials and more.
It is easy to grow, yielding 2-3 crops annually on one field with no need to lie fallow. Doesn't require the chemicals that corn needs to grow healthy.

Careful, anon, your ignorance is showing. Industrial hemp is not smokable, all it'll get you is a headache.

Myth: Industrial Hemp fields would be used to hide marijuana plants.
Reality: Industrial Hemp is grown quite differently from marijuana. Moreover, it is harvested at a different time than marijuana. Finally, cross-pollination between hemp plants and marijuana plants would significantly reduce the potency of the marijuana plant.
