+The White House
i just saw the president give this speech at my school and he went on about alternative energy sources, like wind, solar, and bio diesel.
so my question is why is industrial hemp illegal to cultivate in this country still?
we import and export it, and we can manufacture it if we import the product. Why not create jobs in america by allowing farmers to grow this miracle crop that can be used for paper, rope [(of higher quality then tree's and cotton) the deceleration of independence is written on hemp paper and its more white then regular paper is after being exposed to oxygen for 5 years, how old is the deceleration of independence?]
And the part relevant to this is the seeds can be made into bio diesel fuel and used as a energy source. on top of that the seeds can be used as feed for live stock.
also we have the technology to create building materials from industrial hemp, I've seen entire houses built from nothing but hemp (excluding the electrical, and pluming system),
another sweet FACT
about hemp is the amount of carbon dioxide that is emitted into the atmosphere while manufacturing it into paper is the exact amount of carbon dioxide the crop will recycle back into the atmosphere as oxygen while growing.
if we can import and export why can't we cultivate and make these technologies an affordable and realistic option for the american public. Lets create jobs (in America) and reduce our dependency on foreign oil, by creating a safe (and non finite) bio diesel fuel?
