Hemp - the fiber of the past

Here's something that I remember from my days in Humboldt County, 
California:  A major newspaper article noting that 3 times the fiber 
could be grown per acre if hemp were used rather than the local conifer 
mix of Douglas Fir, Redwood and W. Hemlock.  The idea was seriously 
proposed in the late 70's.  Perhaps someone in the area will remember 
this one.
