I Grew Hemp Sticker


In colonial times (right up until the early twentieth century, actually) hemp was grown all over the United States, but primarily in the Midwest and Eastern states. (Yes, it was once *legal* to grow hemp.) As a farmer, George Washington grew the crop. Washington is often quoted as saying "Make the most of the hemp seed and sow it everywhere." Washington wrote about the plant's profitability in his personal journals and in letters to colleagues. Hemp was viewed as a vital crop for America to sustain her independence.

This sticker is a light green, black, and white portrait of George Washington with a speech bubble. Die-cut vinyl sticker. Approximately 4.25" x 5".
