Hemp is a plant that is very old and diverse in its history. Hemp Inc (symbol: HEMP) is a fairly young company to be traded publicly traded but it is public for all the right reasons and the values behind the company make it special and a fun investment. Hemp is a multi-billion dollar industry worldwide, however, laws from the late 1930′s prevent the USA from taking full advantage of this amazing plant so the majority of the money has gone to foreign hemp growers. Canada to be specific has experienced a huge monetary gain for all of the farmers that grow hemp as well as the chain of companies that process and use the hemp fiber and seeds. The USA is only now realizing that the laws had to change and now has a few states poised to grow hemp in an industrial sized scale again. Hemp Inc is the only company that is perfectly positioned to bring this plant to the stock market and mainstream people of the USA and the world. Hemp Inc’s primary weapon is Hemp.com is the premier domain name in the industrial hemp sector. As such, Hemp.com strives to set new standards as the the world hemp market evolves to new heights. Consumers are embracing hemp products as healthy green alternatives, from food and fabrics to plastic and building materials in a call to action against the petro-chemical, paper and chemical conglomerates. This Earth friendly, mysterious and ancient plant has an allure that keeps the discussion provocative on Hemp com.
Marijuana, Inc. is a subsidiary of Hemp Inc. and has a well aligned vision. Part of that vision is foreseeing the potential worldwide benefits that may be derived from the myriad of uses for industrial hemp and recognizing the profits that could be made in making the world a better place. Marijuana Inc.’s goal is to offer ancient hemp solutions for today’s modern world through various outlets, while educating people of hemp’s many benefits and various medicinal properties. Marijuana, Inc. is working toward a bright green future with HEMP and is working to expand it’s infrastructure in preparation for tomorrow’s complete legalization of marijuana and hemp. In addition to planning to expand it’s local infrastructure, Marijuana Inc. is also working toward building relationships with countries that are already ahead in hemp production.
Hemp, Inc. has developed an extremely diversified business plan since its inception, and as the company has grown, it has reached the point where the Company needs to narrow its focus. Many of Hemp, Inc.’s divisions have developed extremely promising products that no longer match the direction of the Company. Rather than closing these divisions and miss opportunity, the management has decided to spin-off these companies.
1. BioSwan: Dedicated to improving the quality of life via its proprietary all natural formulations and modalities designed to increase the body’s production of pluripotent adult stem cells. Hemp, Inc. has agreed to spin the company off and to retain a two-year exclusive contract for marketing the herbal blends that have been shown to increase the body’s production of these most valuable pluripotent stem cells.
2. Your Bev: More information coming soon
3. VoipNetx: More information coming soon
4. Soon to be announced
Hemp Inc really is a unique company with many values that I can relate to and get behind. Let it be no secret that I own Hemp Inc. stock and intend on getting more. When I see that Hemp, Inc. seeks to benefit many constituencies, not exploit or endanger any group of them. This means that the publicly-traded company believes in “upstreaming” of a portion of profit from the marketing of their finished hemp goods back to its originator. By Hemp, Inc. focusing on comprehensive investment results – that is, with respect to performance along the interrelated dimensions of people, planet, and profits – our triple bottom line approach can be an important tool to support sustainability goals. So, Don’t let the “penny” status scare you, the hemp plant is amazing and Hemp Inc. is the “first to market” company ready to take that one to the bank. My hat is off to the foresight of Bruce Perlowin, David Tobias and their team at Hemp Inc.
It is time for everyone to invest in companies that believe in renew-ability and sustainability like this one. I give them two thumbs up on getting this right! Hemp Inc (symbol: HEMP) is a sure thing in my book!

Efforts to legalize marijuana for recreational use are gaining momentum in Washington state and Colorado, despite fierce opposition from the federal government and a decades-long cultural battle over America’s most commonly used illicit drug.
Officials in Washington state on Friday said an initiative to legalize pot has enough signatures to qualify for the ballot in November. In Colorado, officials are likely this week to make a similar determination about an initiative there.
Supporters are prepared to possibly spend millions of dollars ahead of the November ballot, when they hope a strong voter turnout, particularly among youth, for the U.S. presidential election will aid their cause.
“Whether it’s make or break depends on what public opinion does after 2012, but in terms of voter turnout this is the best year to do it,” said Alison Holcomb, director of New Approach Washington, the initiative’s sponsor.
While 16 states, including Washington and Colorado, along with the nation’s capital, now allow marijuana use for medical purposes, cannabis remains an illegal narcotic under U.S. law – and public opinion is sharply divided on the merits of full legalization.
California voters turned back a ballot initiative to legalize marijuana for recreational use in 2010, in part because of concerns about how production and sale of the drug would be regulated.
Since then, the U.S. Department of Justice has cracked down on medical cannabis operations in California, Washington state and elsewhere, raiding dispensaries and growing operations and threatening landlords with prosecution.

Canada: Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods & Oils has landed another round of venture-capital funding to help finance growth and strengthen its supply chain. This new funding will help spur growth for Manitoba Harvest!
No totals were disclosed in the latest round of financing from Calgary-based Avrio Ventures and White Road Investments from Emeryville, Calif., but Manitoba Harvest CEO Mike Fata said it’s a multimillion-dollar investment.
“This investment is to help fuel our growth,” he said. “We have been growing by leaps and bounds in Canada and the U.S.”
The company has been averaging 40 to 50 per cent annual growth and Fata said sales in the first five weeks of its current fiscal year have doubled last year’s.
Founded in 1998, the company has a blossoming portfolio of products, from hemp beverages and hemp protein to powders, oil, butter and Hemp Hearts.
It’s also expanding its distribution channel.
Before, Manitoba Harvest products were predominantly found in natural-foods stores. But now they’re in Safeway and other grocery stores — in the general produce section at that, not just the health-foods section — as well as more than 60 Costco stores in Canada.
While there is a general complaint about the lack of growth and venture capital available for Manitoba companies, Manitoba Harvest has been amazingly successful in that regard.
It is the third round of investment from Avrio, a venture-capital firm that specializes in industrial bio-products, nutraceutical ingredients and food-technology companies. White Road becomes its first U.S. investment.
“It speaks to our sound business plan and the kind of opportunities for our type of products in the industry today,” said Fata.
Consistently ranked as one of the 200 fastest-growing companies in the country by Profit Magazine, Fata said Manitoba Harvest may top the $20 million mark in sales this year.
Dave Shambrock, executive director of the Manitoba Food Processors Association, said Manitoba Harvest is in a great position with consumers who are demanding much more transparency about what they are consuming and where it’s coming from.
“Not so many years ago, Mike Fata started with an idea. He’s a global player now in the health-food world,” Shambrock said. “It’s a great Manitoba success story.”
With more than 50 employees, the company invested $1 million in plant and equipment upgrades last year and Fata said the company will be investing another $1 million this year.

Two bills before Congress, known as the Protect IP Act (PIPA) in the Senate and the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) in the House, would censor the Web and impose harmful regulations on American business. Millions of Internet users and entrepreneurs already oppose SOPA and PIPA.
Under the current wording of the measures, the Attorney General would have the power to order ISPs to block access to foreign-based sites suspected of trafficking in pirated and counterfeit goods; order search engines to delist the sites from their indexes; ban advertising on suspected sites; and block payment services from processing transactions for accused sites. If the same standards were applied to U.S.-based sites, Hemp.com, Wikipedia, Tumblr, WordPress, Blogger, Google and Wired could all find themselves blocked.
The Senate will begin voting on January 24th. Please let them know how you feel. Sign this petition urging Congress to vote NO on PIPA and SOPA before it is too late.
