AGRICULTURAL SOLUTIONS for REVITALIVING MI's 5th by UTILIZING LOCAL FARMING, GROWHOUSES & INDUSTRIAL HEMP

(TomWhitmire.com) Our intent is to inform you that by utilizing existing technologies in Agriculture we can bring solutions to the people of The 5th Congressional District.
 
AGRICULTURAL INDUSTRY is ANSWER
Michigan in the past had a huge agricultural industry and we will revitalize it. In this District we have the ability to grow apples, blue berries, celery, asparagus and almost any nutritious vegetable.

 
We will get these foods into our schools, medical facilities and institutions. There is already a movement to have 20 percent of the foods served in our institutions to be produced locally by the year 2020. It is programs like this that we need to protect and create awareness and support for


NO GMO FOOD
Slowly the 5th District has started producing a lot of Genetically Modified (GMO) and Genetically Engineered (GE) crops like corn & soybeans. These GMO crops are not suited for human consumption. The huge amount of pesticides and chemical based fertilizers used in their growth becomes a strain on the environment.
 
We do not need to legislate away the dangerous foods but we do need to provide our population with another option and then educate them why that option is a better choice for their future.

The 5th's Unrealized Potential according to our research is: When the local Farmers from The 5th Congressional District left the farm fields for the factories of GM their land was left alone or the farming was only done for a hobby. When the monocropping boom swept
across the Great Plains bringing with it Genetically Modified Seeds, Poisonous Pesticides & Dangerous Fertilizers; it skipped over The 5th Crongressional District. We are now sitting on some of the most Organic Fertile Soil in the Nation and nobody realizes it. The 5th Congressional District is not going to reinvent itself with anything else but Nutrition Programs, Agriculture and producing products from the land.

We already have the best logistical infrastructure in the country with the factories already sitting on the railway loading docks. All we have to do is start processing highly nutritious food in those factories and we can ship it around the country with huge economical benefits to the region. More importantly however is using the food to feed our own population of citizens & students right here in The 5th Congressional District.

We have a financial and social responsibility to stop growing genetically modified Corn and Soybean and to start growing real food again. We need to start producing edible food for our own population and also to sell it for profit. Other large industrial countries like China & Russia have banned genetically modified foods being imported into their countries by the U.S.A. This is leading to a huge loss of money for the large GMO companies. However this news is not being reported by the major news networks. The rest of the world has realized that GMO food is a giant experiment being waged against people, they are out.

If the farms in the 5th District decide to stop growing GMO's and to start growing real food we will be way ahead of the rest of the country. This will in turn lead to high profits for our agricultural producers and that leads to job and economy growth.

WHAT SHOULD WE GROW YOU ASK?

INDUSTRIAL HEMP is the SOLUTION for 5th DISTRICT
IF I ONLY WROTE 1 BILL or CREATED ONE LAW?
Legalize & encourage the growing of Industrial Hemp in Michigan's 5th Congressional District.

HEMP for INDUSTRY | Industrial Hemp (cannabis sativa) with no THC

Hemp is the world's most versatile fiber. Widespread cultivation of hemp is vital to reclaiming The 5th as a sustainable district run by it’s own people. Hemp can be grown by the people of The 5th Congressional District for the people of The 5th.

The hemp stalks primary and secondary fibers are commonly used in textile production (clothing, upholstery and household goods), plus construction materials, paper and plastics. The woody core of the stalk (known as the hurdsor shives) is the bundle of cellulose-laden short fibers that can be pressed to make biodiesel and other fossil fuel products. The interior fibers contain almost 80% cellulose and are perfect for paper production, making building materials and creating composite materials. Hemp Seeds are one are a perfect source of amino acids thus making them a perfect protein and perfect food. We have the capabilities to turn The 5th into a Hemp based District. This means that The 5th will be able to feed and rebuild itself with it’s own crops, grown by local people.

“Hemp is of first necessity to the wealth & protection of the country.”
  - Thomas Jefferson, U.S. President
 
Hemp (Cannabis sativa) is the source of one of the longest, strongest natural fibers on earth, two to three times stronger than cotton. It is so strong that you can build houses from it’s fiber.

It can be grown in Michigan's climate and soil condition, without the need for chemical pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and fertilizers. It is excellent for reclaiming otherwise-unusable land. It has even been shown to clean up toxic soil. Hemp has strong mold, bacteria, heat, and U.V. resistant qualities.
 
Anything that can be made from wood, cotton, or oil can be made from hemp. Important uses include:


• Textiles
• Rope & Twine
• Construction materials
• Hempcrete Concrete
• Industrial Composites
• Paper
• Paints & sealants
• BioFuel 
• Plastics & Polymers
• Fuel & Lubricants
• Body Care Products
• Clothes
• Food
• Medicine
• Bedding
• Insulation


WE WANT TO SEE THE 5th DISTRICT BECOME ONE OF THE CHIEF PRODUCERS OF ‘INDUSTRIAL HEMP’ IN THE WORLD!
