In 1762, "Virginia awarded bounties for hempculture and
manufacture, and imposed penalties upon those who did not
George Washington was growing hemp at Mount Vernon three years
later--presumably for its fiber, though it has been argued that
Washington was also concerned to increase the medicinal or
intoxicating potency of his marijuana plants.*
The asterisk footnote:
* The argument depends on a curious tradition, which may
or may not be sound, that the quality or quantity of marijuana
resin (hashish) is enhanced if the male and female plants are
separated *before* the females are pollinated. There can be no
doubt that Washington separated the males and the females. Two
entries in his diary supply the evidence:
May 12-13 1765: "Sowed Hemp at Muddy hole by Swamp."
August 7, 1765: "--began to separate (sic) the Male from
the Female Hemp at Do--rather too late."
George Andrews has argued, in _The Book of Grass: An Anthology of
Indian Hemp_ (1967), that Washington's August 7 diary entry
"clearly indiactes that he was cultivating the plant for medicinal
purposes as well for its fiber."  He might have
separated the males from the females to get better fiber, Andrew
concedes--but his phrase "rather too late" suggests that he
wanted to complete the separation *before the female plants were
fertilized*--and this was a practice related to drug potency
rather that to fiber culture.

A weed is a flower: The Life Of George Washington Carver
One can go to their local garden centre and ask an employee about the weeds that grow in your garden. They can recommend a weed killer that is suitable for your garden.
No- but George Washington raised cannabis at Mt. Vernon. Cannabis (Hemp) was used for making rope.
he sold weed on the street corner!!!!
Weed the garden...lol!
Lol, Miracle grow is for garden weeds. Not weed that you smoke. If you do use it for marijuana, it'll ruin it.. because of toxic chemicals.
Yes, George Washington and Abraham Lincoln are some examples.
My son likes to pull weed from the garden. Mom likes to smoke weed. Lets all smoke weed and pull weed out of the garden!
A weed is an unwanted plant. Can be in your garden or in a forest etc
Water and weed it.
