While there is evidence that Washinton grew hemp, whether he smoked it is inconclusive. Hemp was a sizeable industry because of its use in making fabric and rope, large quantities of which were needed for the large sailing vessels of the day. To the best of my knowlege, the product of choice for smoking in the day was tobacco.

As our focus continues to be on the violence in the Middle East, it is also important to pay attention to what is going on just south of our own border in Mexico. The war between the Mexican government and drug cartels is still raging with the war's latest victim being female Mayor Maria Santos Gorrostieta, who was beaten, burned, tortured and dumped for dead on the side of the road. Before being killed, Gorrostieta had been attacked twice by cartels for daring to challenge them. The third attack they waged on her, was her last.
