VOTE TOM WHITMIRE for CONGRESS on AUG. 5th

INDUSTRIAL HEMP is the SOLUTION for MICHIGAN's 5th CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT & TOM WHITMIRE is the MAN to DO IT! VOTE AUGUST 5th in PRIMARY

If I only passed two bills in my two years in office they would be
#1 Legalization of Industrial Hemp in the 5th District of Michigan and
#2 A complete ban of fluoride in the water system.

Let's focus for now on the #1 Cash Crop in the world, INDUSTRIAL HEMP.

If the farms in the 5th District decide to stop growing GMO's
and to start growing real food, like Industrial Hemp 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.

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.

Hemp Seeds are one are a perfect source of amino acids thus making them a perfect protein and perfect food. Almost anything produced with crude oil can be equally produced utilizing industrial hemp. This includes fuel 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. Henry Ford made cars out of hemp that actually ran on hemp. The hemp stalks primary and secondary fibers are commonly used in textile production (clothing, upholstery and household goods), plus construction materials, paper and plastics. Industrial Hemp can be used to make almost all textile products that are currently made of cotton and it is six times more durable and becomes just as soft to the touch. The interior fibers contain almost 80% cellulose and are perfect for paper production, making building materials and creating composite materials. Hemp fibers can easily be used to produce paper products and they make the use of lumber obsolete. Making paper out of wood creates a lot of pollution and this is not the case with Hemp.

The 5th district was once the center of automobile production in the world. That industry has gone away but what remains is a system of factories that already sit one of the best supply chain and logistics systems in the world. From the 5th district we can ship hemp based products throughout the country and around the world. My plan also takes into effect the ability to use hemp based technologies right here in the district to do things like paving the roads, building infrastructure and feeding the hungry. I can oppose many conventional technologies because of my knowledge of the fact that they will become obsolete as soon as we convert this country back to an Industrial Hemp based agricultural economy.

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

“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 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.

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

WHY NOT GROWING IT ALREADY?
The only reason hemp is not being grown in the USA is because of special interests and lobbyists making it illegal because it is a chief rival of the Oil Industry, Cotton Industry, Lumber Industry and Big Agricultural companies.

There is no way that growing Industrial Hemp should ever be compared to growing Marijuana. These plants are totally different and it is very easy to identify the difference.

Research for yourself!



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 mono cropping boom swept across the Great Plains bringing with it Genetically Modified Seeds, Poisonous Pesticides & Dangerous Fertilizers; it skipped over The 5th Congressional 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, like Industrial Hemp 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.
