Marijuana, Cash Crop

In the early 1800s, marijuana was Kentucky’s number one crop. It was legal then. People did not smoke it. Marijuana was used for its fiber, called hemp, which was used in ships’ sails, rope, twine, paper and canvas.

Most books made before 1875 were made of marijuana, not paper.
