Lets compare Weed and Hemp, today on Lex's World! Hemp is Cannabis and Cannabis is hemp... but there are many types of Cannabis and Hemp is one specific type of it. You can't get baked smoking Hemp unless you really put it away. Hemp can be used for Food, Textiles, Paper, rope, fuel and even Building Materials (Ever heard of Hempcrete?) Unfortunately, the Reefer Madness Era caused this very useful natural resource to be squandered because of its loose affiliation with the Cannabis that makes you high.
