Thomas Jefferson Grew Hemp

Did you know that Founding Father Thomas Jefferson was a hempster? He grew hemp, he also invented a hemp 'breaker' machine to process the hemp easier and he made numerous notes in his farmer's journal about bringing hemp seeds back from Europe while he was serving as Ambassador between 1785-1789. Jefferson was also responsible for drafting the Declaration Of Independence (the drafts were drawn up on Hemp paper). In May of 1781 Jefferson had Hemp replaced currency when the government was in short supply. Thomas Jefferson was a true forward thinker!
