    Decriminalize Hemp.

    Yes, it's that simple. That alone would add 2% annually to US GDP

    FDR only outlawed it so he could prolong the Great Depression, empower his fianciers and crush ordinary citizens.

    Decriminalize Hemp. Every great civilization on this planet used it as a staple: the Egyptians, Sumerians, Greeks and Romans and the USA until 1937.

    Chanute Air Force Base (built in 1917) used to grow acres of the stuff. In the 70's my brother would sneak under the fence and grab about 50 pounds at a time, bag it up and sell it. The stuff was headache weed but folks bought it 'cause it was cheap and smoking was mostly a social interaction.
