LAS VEGAS, June 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP), a publicly traded company, in conjunction with Hemp.com gears up to bring awareness to the general public through "Hempsters Plant the Seed", as Hemp Industries Associations (HIA) gets into full swing with the 4th Annual Hemp History Week. The event, slated for June 3-9, 2013 will be featuring nation-wide awareness events while celebrating America's deep Hemp history as a way to restore Industrial Hemp as an agricultural crop in American Farmlands.
The documentary, "Hempsters Plant the Seed", focuses on Industrial Hemp Activists in America, starring Woody Harrelson, Merle Haggard, Alex White Plume, Julia Butterfly Hill, Donna Cockrel, Craig Lee and Kentucky Hemp Farmers Jake and Andy Graves and will be the featured film screened in several cities sponsored by Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP). The goal is to bring awareness to the general public about Hemp in order to build strong end-user markets necessary to employ Americans once prohibition of Hemp is lifted in the United States.
'"Hempsters Plant the Seed' spread awareness to millions of viewers about the benefits and potential of Hemp. Hemp, Inc. is proud to be part of other effective awareness campaigns with the same core mission," states David Tobias, Hemp, Inc.'s President, also known as the "Baron of Barges."
According to Tobias, Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP) is coproducing "Hemp Across America: The Revolution and Hemp Canada: Seeds of Growth" as the first of a two-part documentary series detailing the United States movement to restore Hemp as an agricultural crop and economic engine.
So far, the team has captured footage at the HempHeals Festival with interviews from celebrities like Rome with Sublime and Sen Dog, not to mention, the first Hemp planting recently by Colorado Hemp Farmers Ryan Loflin of Colorado Hemp and Chris Thompson of Rocky Mountain in Littleton, CO. The film team goes on the road this month for pre-production in multiple locations across America with Alternate Ending Studios (AES).
Hemp, a viable agricultural crop is being used worldwide to produce sustainable products in the building, food, automobile and textile industries and is considered one of the best crops for BioFuels and clean heating products being developed for the Future. Despite the plethora of economic benefits, agricultural Hemp production is currently prohibited in the United States.
Dannion Brinkley, CEO of the Twilight Brigade, American author, hospice volunteer, speaker and Hemp supporter was quoted saying, "It appears that America, once again, is coming of age." He believes the military uniform and hospital bedding in the VA should be made of Hemp. "This would provide increased longevity, durability and would be cost effective. Even Kentucky Senator Rand Paul wore a white oxford shirt made of hemp when he testified before the Kentucky legislature supporting the approval of hemp as a cash crop for Kentucky farmers."
Indeed, Hemp awareness has been spreading by leaps and bounds. Craig Perlowin, Hemp, Inc.'s Secretary/Treasurer, also known as the "Dock Master" said, "Hemp, Inc. is proud to be doing its part in the 4th Annual Hemp History Week. Helping spread awareness to as many people as we can is one of our primary goals."
