Hemp was grown in the USA during WWII.

My cousin wrote a book in which she tells they had a hemp crop, and  
the harvest was labor intensive.

She had young children to take care of, so her husband got two German  
POWs from the camp who helped with the hemp harvest in southern MN.

My cousins had grown up speaking German, so were able to communicate  
with the POWs.
