Marijuana, Inc. Media Division MarijuanaInc.TV Segment Producer Stephanie Bishop In Dallas, TX To Cover Screening Of Hempsters: Plant The Seed Movie
LAS VEGAS, April 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MARIJUANA, INC. (OTC:HEMP) or (HEMP.PK) is pleased to announce that MarijuanaInc.TV Segment Producer Stephanie Bishop will be in Dallas, Texas to cover the Director's Screening Party "Hemp Bash 2012" for the movie Hempsters: Plant The Seed starring Woody Harrelson, Willie Nelson, Ralph Nader and Merle Haggard. Content, including interviews, will be made available on www.marijuanainc.tv and www.hemp.com.
Hempsters: Plant The Seed follows seven activists as they fight to legalize industrial hemp in the United States. Industrial hemp is used in over 30 countries and is widely known to have numerous environmental benefits such as: less reliance on oil, more efficient use of energy, forest conservation, soil redemption and landfill use reduction. As our society continues to consume 30% more than the planet can regenerate, Industrial Hemp is proven to be a viable and cost-effective crop that can reduce our reliance on some of the earth's most precious resources.
The film begins with the arrest of Woody Harrelson for planting four uncultivated hemp seeds in Kentucky and his subsequent trial and acquittal. This lively documentary, directed by Michael Henning and produced by Diana Oliver, explores the reasons why the United States is the only developed country that still bans the growth of Industrial Hemp. Hemp, which is a durable fiber cultivated from plants of the cannabis genus, can be used for paper, textiles, biodegradable plastics, construction, health food and fuel. Due to its relation to marijuana, it is illegal to grow in the U.S. under Federal law. Hemp is considered a controlled substance under the Controlled Substances Act even though it contains minimum levels of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).
Featured speaker Julia "Butterfly" Hill, activist and environmentalist will address a crowd of hemp enthusiasts. Hill went to extreme lengths to protest the pulping of old-growth forests by living for over two years at the top of a 1,000 year old redwood tree in Northern California. Industrial hemp is a viable alternative for timber products. Hill lived in the tree, affectionately known as "Luna," to prevent loggers of the Pacific Lumber Company from cutting it down. She is the author of the book The Legacy of Luna and co-author of One Makes the Difference. Hill was the subject of the 2000 documentary film Butterfly, and she is featured in the documentary film Tree-Sit: The Art of Resistance, both chronicling her time in the redwood tree.CEO Bruce Perlowin stated, "As traffic to www.marijuanainc.tv and www.hemp.com increases, so will revenues through advertisers.
