They had something better . It was hemp. Hardly a family on the frontier wasnt involved in the hemp trade. Hemp patents were usually granted to war veterans
Hemp was outlawed when the Dupont corp patented synthtic rope. Exactly same time. It was also used to keep the Negro slaves from running off. After hard day of choping wood packing corn hauling bundles selltling down the mules. You were dead beat tired. A bowl of ganga insured thed go to sleep and have good nights rest. To tired and to stoned to run anywhere.
