Ed Thompson on Jobs

Former Libertarian Challenger WI Governor

Let farmers grow hemp

Wisconsin's farmers built the backbone of this state. Ed doesn't believe they should be slaves to bureaucrats and politicians, begging for handouts. They should be given more freedom to respond to the market place. That includes industrial hemp production, which offers an incredible opportunity for Wisconsin farmers to raise a profitable, environmentally friendly cash crop that would help to free them from the dependence on subsidies distributed at the whims of politicians. This plant offers a great opportunity for paper production, fabrics that can compete with cotton and linen, and oils for both industrial and health value. The federal government has already granted waivers to Hawaii, and Ed will pursue them for Wisconsin's farmers.
