Did Jefferson draft the Constitution on Hemp paper?

I hope this letter can reach the correct party. I am trying to add your website as a source for the fact that the Constitution was drafted on Hemp paper to http://www.wikepedia.org and am receiving feedback from my peers saying that your website doesn’t cite the source for the “claim”. Could you help me locate the source of the fact that “George Washington and Thomas Jefferson both grew hemp. Ben Franklin owned a mill that made hemp paper. Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence on hemp paper.” If so it would be much appreciated? Thanks, Jared
