By MONEY MORNING STAFF REPORTS
A growing number of Americans, from all walks of life, are becoming millionaires from the legalization of marijuana in several states.
Think about this…
A single plant can produce as much as $14,000 worth of pot. The average grow room can hold well over 100 plants, which makes each room worth an astonishing $1,400,000+.
So while money may not grow on trees, there are piles of money to be made from the trees themselves.
Take Hank Borunda – a 25-year-old dispensary owner who went from selling pine nuts on a street corner to making a $1.5 million profit three months after setting up his weed dispensary.
And if that wasn’t enough to convince you that this is America’s next booming industry…
43 marijuana stocks have shot up over 1,000% since this recent run of states turning their backs on the federal government and passing legislation to legalize weed…
It’s like the Internet boom of the late ‘90s all over again. The money is there for the taking – it’s just a matter of buying the right stocks at the right time.
There’s never been a better time to get in on the ground floor.
BRINGING IT HOME – Industrial Hemp: Jobs, Fuel, Food, Health, Housing, Paper, Textiles, Auto Parts, Livestock Feed are all possibilities of this miracle plant.
This video is about a father’s search to find the healthiest building materials that leads him to the completion of the nation’s first hemp house. Hemp with lime is a non-toxic, energy efficient, mildew, fire and pest resistant building material. The drawback — industrial hemp is currently illegal to farm in the U.S.A. Industrial hemp is a non-psychoactive plant, grown in 31 other countries that makes 1,000’s of sustainable products and offers solutions for global warming, nutrition, poverty and deforestation. Here in the U.S., hemp could be a money-making crop for farmers and create jobs. But why can’t we grow it here? BRINGING IT HOME tells the story of hemp: past, present and future and a global industry that includes textiles, building materials, food products, bio-plastics, auto parts and more.
More industrial hemp is exported to the U.S. than to any other country and American consumers are purchasing over $450 million in hemp products annually. BRINGING IT HOME explores the question of why a crop with so many widespread benefits cannot be farmed in the United States by illustrating its history, current industries and talking to both opponents and proponents of the industrial hemp farming legalization effort.
BRINGING IT HOME tells the story of hemp’s past, present and future through interviews with hemp business leaders and entrepreneurs from all over the globe, historical images and media clips, and footage filmed in the U.K, Spain, Washington D.C., California and North Carolina. The documentary aims to magnify dialogue about hemp in order to facilitate America’s transition to a more informed, sustainable, and healthy future.
The film was inspired by environmentally-conscious home designer Anthony Brenner’s story to find the healthiest building material available to build a safe indoor environment for his young daughter Bailey, who has a rare genetic disorder and sensitivity to synthetic chemicals. Anthony made headlines in USA Today and CNN when he completed “America’s First Hemp House” for the former mayor of Asheville, North Carolina. Anthony’s story is one of the inspirational tales profiled in this film that provides viewers with a new connection to the issue of toxicity in human habitats and how hemp can play a role in innovative healthy green building solutions. In Bringing it Home, we follow Anthony’s mission to build The Bird’s Nest, the world’s first hempcrete built, toxin-free residential home for his daughter and other children and adults with disabilities.
A major drawback for Anthony and other U.S. builders using hemp is that the fiber must be imported. We followed the hemp trail of the Asheville house to England where we spoke with hemp business owners and facilities, filmed hemp farms and commercial structures. We meet Kevin McCloud, the popular designer, author and TV host of Grand Designs who developed a hemp townhouse neighborhood in Swindon. We interviewed researcher Dr. Michael Lawrence at the University of Bath’s “HemPod” research structure who talks about the humidity regulating and carbon absorbing benefits of hemp construction. West of London, Mike Giffin, Farm consultant with Hemp Technology, takes us “in the field” to discuss the benefits of hemp as an agricultural crop. We learn about hemp foods and nutrition from Henry Braham, hemp farmer and founder of GOOD Oil in the U.K.
Additional interviews with experts filmed at the 2nd International Hemp Building Symposium in Granada, Spain speak to global hemp industries and uses worldwide, and we visit a Spanish architect and her family in their hemp (Cannabric) home and holiday apartments near Almeria. In Washington, D.C. we try to keep up with energetic Ben Droz, legislative liaison for Vote Hemp as he works the corridors of Capitol Hill trying to gain sponsors and support for the Industrial Hemp Farming Act and we visit Capitol Hemp — a retail store featuring hemp clothing and products. Eric Steenstra, with Vote Hemp and HIA shares insights into current U.S. legislative efforts and outreach to the White House.
In California, American hemp business CEO’s David and Mike Bronner of Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps and John Roulac of Nutiva discuss how hemp products built their million dollar companies. In Sacramento we sit down with John Lovell, lobbyist for the CA Narcotics Officers Association to hear the opposition to legalizing hemp farming.
Back in North Carolina, we spend time with eco-couture designer Stephanie Teague who uses organic hemp fabrics from China while making a home in Greensboro, NC where textile industries once employed many. Farmers in Silk Hope, NC hear about hemp’s agricultural benefits and voice their support for bringing this crop back to American farms where it used to grow.
Hemp’s role in world and American history is treated through lively animation and brief segments using archival imagery to discuss the importance of hemp during Colonial times through the World War II era and it’s eventual classification as a substance one narcotic, even though the oil, seed and fiber varieties of industrial hemp cannot be used as a drug.

WILD AND FREE (A Fire Burns for Freedom) Lyrics
by Ziggy Marley
A fire burns for freedom
A fire burns for freedom
The smell of decent is I
I am standing for the truth
Too long has been denied
The data of changing is rising
I hope we realize
Unchained wings let angels fly
I see hemp fields forever
Growing wild and free
I see marijuana trees blowing in our breeze
I see hemp fields forever growing wild and free
Wild and free
A crime against nations
A war is waged there is a message
In the wind for every race
Peace and love we saw
So let us grow is good for the body
Is good for the soul
So lost the kiss of death
Deny the tree of life
Stand hypocrisy for so many lies
Corporation greed can only see small farmers survive by planting weed
Crucified savior to save your face
Demonized nature our saving grace
We got to put to good use
What the lord has gave
Fruits of the tree herbs of the fields
