In order to get some idea of what people know about hemp,  to see if they understand how it differs from psychoactive cannabis, to gauge their opinions of hemp and cannabis and if what they know/think about hemp is influenced by what they know/their opinions of cannabis,  i composed two surveys. I had intended for this to be one survey, but i wanted to be able to share this online and in order to be able to do that without a cost i split it into two parts. The first focussing on What they actually know about hemp/cannabis, and seeing what type of people seem to know more. And the second Is more focused on Hemps position within society, and how that relates to the position of Cannabis.

this has helped me identify what my focus should be for my illustrations, it would seem people know very little about hemp, and its uses. so i have decided to visually represent its cultivation and applications.
