A Letter to the Editor that practically writes itself

Check out this news from Canada: Hemp Refiner Expected To Provide New Income For 200 Farmers

Stonehedge is now set to establish a bioprocessing facility in Eastern Ontario to serve North American markets. Some of the products and co-products are aimed at the automotive, energy, agriculture, construction material, and pulp and paper markets. This fibre separation facility ( decortication plant ) is expected to provide new farm income for about 200 farmers, putting more than 12,000 acres into cultivation, said John Baker, president and founder of Stonehedge.

So why are we denying our farmers the opportunity to compete in the global market? Why is the U.S. giving a government monopoly on hemp industry jobs to Canada?
