Prized by its ease of cultivation (it is a form of "weed" after all) and the myriad of usages, hemp was once the most abundant crop in United States. That was till 1930s when U.S. government categorized it with its more potent cousin, marijuana, and made the cash crop illegal. Today, facing economic hardship and being environmentally conscious, there is a ardent push to legalize the crop once again.
While its legalization is still in flux, Japan's BAPE (A Bathing Ape (BAPE) ) have took upon itself and created it NEONCAMO Hemp Accessories Collection. Resilient and lightweight, each of the 4 models within the collection are imprinted with outlines from BAPE's trademarked NEONCAMO print. Lined with nylon on the interior to keep its content dry, the NEONCAMO Hemp Collection comes in 4 forms: messenger bag and day pack for Men, and 2 totes, in large and small sizes, for Women. Available now at all BAPE retail locations in Japan, its official online store, and the recently opened BAPE LAND chapter on ZOZOTOWN shopping network.
*SIDE NOTE* Several recent published research have shown the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the substance that get people "high", is so minute in hemp. You have smoke a hemp blunt the size of a tree trunk in order to get the same result as marijuana
