Industrial hemp was used for centuries to make fiber, paper, food, and fuels, until the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937 effectively put the kibosh on all cannabis. Only a year into hempâ€™s re-legalization, its oil is being touted as a treatment for a slew of ailments, from epilepsy to anxiety and inflammation. CBD products are appearing in health stores and even on supermarket shelves, and Carlâ€™s Jr., a national fast-food franchise, served up a CBD burger called the Rocky Mountain High this year. But many people still act on some primal urge when they see a field of hemp, thinking itâ€™s something else. They steal from the Amish, and from farms in Vermont; in Ventura County, Calif., a 70-year-old man was caught stealing hemp last week.
