Upon reading the article on erosion on the Yukon River problem in Galena 
("New package of federal funds may help Galena fight erosion," Sept. 13), I 
couldn't help but think, why not plant hemp? It doesn't need fertilizer or 
pesticides. Hemp actually improves the soil and it would give young fish 
more habitat. Since it is hemp, it would not be psychoactive. Perhaps 
they'll give it a try; what is there to lose? The world has used it for 
years to prevent soil erosion. Please vote yes for Proposition 5 on Nov. 7.
