On Wednesday, June 5th in Hollywood, CA, organizers of Hemp History Week will be hosting a special premiere of “Bringing It Home, a documentary film about industrial HEMP, healthy houses, and a greener future for America,” a new hour-long documentary about industrial hemp that examines why the cultivation of a crop with so many widespread benefits is prohibited in the U.S..
