Industrializing Ghana through Hemp Production

African Governments can introduce hemp seeds as a modern food staple crop and for the commercial materials made from them: cold pressed oil, shelled seeds (or hemp nuts), flour and protein powder.
Cannabis can be grown without pesticides, herbicides, and with reduced fertiliser inputs. The use of these agro-chemicals is not only expensive in economic terms, but damaging ecologically, both in the production processes, transportation, storage and handling, and to the ecology of an area.


Cannabis requires less water than cotton, when grown as a fibre. Hemp is suited to rotations as it is an annual and could be could be alley-cropped with leguminous trees or shrubs providing windbreaks. It replenishes and reconditions soil (by root binding) and preventing soil erosion.

A 1986 Estimate is given by Kleiman, who puts 1986 consumption at the equivalent of 2700 metric tons of 6% THC cannabis; other trafficking-based estimates range as high as 4700 tons.20  Translated to the U.S, this would amount to over 60,000 retailers and 100,000 jobs. cannabis would also permit the agriculture of hemp, a versatile source of fiber, protein, biomass and oil, which was once one of America’s top crops. Hemp production might well rival that of other leading crops such as cotton or soy beans, which are currently on the order of $ 6 – 10 billion per year.


Save the considerable economic and social costs of the current criminal prohibition system. Current federal drug enforcement programs run at $13 billion per year. State and local programs are probably of similar or greater magnitude: in California, the Legislative Analyst’s Office estimated the cost of state drug enforcement programs at around $640 million per year in 1989-90, plus perhaps twice as much more in local expenditures.26 A sizable chunk of these costs involve cannabis, which accounts for 30% of drug arrests nationwide. Legalization of cannabis would also divert demand from other drugs, resulting in further savings. If legalization reduced current narcotics enforcement costs by one-third to one-fourth, it might save $6 – $9 billion per year.


The economic benefits of marijuana legalization are summarized in Table 2. The total direct savings to government in taxes and enforcement come to some $8 – $16 billion per year. These figures are somewhat lower than those sometimes bandied about in public discourse, as both legalizers and prohibitionists have a tendency to make consumption estimates that are in our opinion inflated. Nonetheless, the benefits of legalization seem both substantial and undeniable, and deserve to be taken seriously.

The History Of Hemp Homes-UN Official Blasts New Marijuana Legalization in US

By the third millennium BCE, the true hemp plant was known in Egypt, where the fibers were used for rope. The ancient Egyptian word for hemp occurs in the Pyramid Texts in connection with rope making. Pieces of hempen material were found in the tomb of the pharaoh Akhenaten, and pollen on the mummy of Ramses II has been identified as cannabis. Hemp was used in the construction of the pyramids, not only to pull blocks of limestone, but also in quarries, where the dried fiber was pounded into cracks in the rock, then wetted. As the fiber swelled, the rock broke.

Thanks to their love of the nutritious seed, birds also did their unwitting part to spread hemp’s global cultivation. The Roman empire consumed great quantities of hemp fiber, much of which was imported from the Babylonian city of Sura. Cannabis was not a major crop in early Italy, but the seed was a common food. Carbonized hemp seeds were found in the ruins of Pompeii, buried by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. The Romans helped spread hemp through Europe, although the plant was well known there already. The Vikings relied on hemp as rope, sailcloth, caulking, fish line and nets on their daring voyages.

Hemp is a Natural Biocide.
Mold growth, and insects are are negated due to hemp’s innate qualities as it functions as a natural biocide. A building material that would be fast in curing and robust on many levels to build structures from, in a way of manufacturing panelized homes to supply the needs of human shelters. To lessen the footprint caused by conventional construction methods and means. To supply within the home an autonomic function of food growing capabilities, which in turn will supply clean air, heating, and cooling by thermal convection. The home then becomes a living structure.
