Billion Dollar Crop - The history and advantages of hemp as an industrial fiber

Static Preview
An Australian documentary from 1994 which brings to light the history, many uses of, conspiracy and smear campaign against, and the future of one of the planet's most versatile and potentially revolutionary plants: cannabis.
BILLION DOLLAR CROP shows how the recently developed, non-drug variety of hemp is being researched and cultivated internationally because of the plant's versatile qualities and environmental friendliness. This program takes the audience on a world tour from Australia to the United Kingdom, and from The Netherlands to France and the US. It illustrates how hemp is being cultivated as an industrial fiber for use as an alternative to wood for paper production, to cotton for clothes, and to plywood for construction. We all benefit, especially our forests and topsoil. Published on May 8, 2012

Produced with Michael Cordell and Jeffrey Bruer

Directed by Barbara Ann Chobocky

DVD available from Bull Frog Films.
