It all goes back to people. Nobody could make hemp "illegal" on their own, no matter how rich. The general public had to allow government to impose that on them. No business or corporation can impose anything on the people, even with government help, without the cooperation of the population. Otherwise, the internet as we know it would have been dead a long time ago.
When "we the people" decide to stop allowing government to destroy our development, then it will stop. Not before then.
How that's going to happen is anyone's guess. There are many, many wonders waiting in the wings... waiting for freedom
