OK, a little under the influence so bear with me...
Federally (and I know there are a few exceptions), growing marijuana is illegal and has been for quite some time agreed?
So how is it we can (and have been able to) buy hemp necklaces, shoes, hats, lotions, etc.?
Someone has to grow the stuff in order to make these things.
Surely it's not all imported...right?
I know there's prolly a logical answer that I'm just unaware of; but I'm curious as hell.

i know i aint in the usa but were am at there are hemp farms, plants they grow aint got no thc and aint know real use to tokers so guess its no problem.
Hemp is illegal to grow in the U.S. under federal law due to its relation to marijuana, and any imported hemp products must meet a zero tolerance level. It is considered a controlled substance under the Controlled Substances Act (P.L. 91-513; 21 U.S.C. 801 et seq.). Some states have defied federal law and made the cultivation of industrial hemp legal. These states — North Dakota, Hawaii, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Montana, West Virginia, Vermont, and Oregon — have not yet begun to grow hemp due to resistance from the federal Drug Enforcement Administration.
Beware of advice offered by anyone that hopes to sell you something.
that was some nice info mate.. that is crazy that a plant that contains less than like i think 1% thc can be considered something that should fall under the regulation of the dea.. that is some whacky stuff.. it does however, make me wonder if this country is ever going to get anywhere with this war on drugs though..

Most hemp products are imported.
