Mister Peejay: Fark U: Mister Peejay: Basically, if it wasn't there, then "new" oil out of the ground would be used instead, net environmental benefit of zero.Holy sheet are you stupidPerhaps I am. Please enlighten me on how using petroleum only once instead of twice is better for the environment.
I Like Shiny Things: The only kind of people who even give 2 farking shiats about hemp or any farking thing like it are people who want to justify their doobage intake.Either man up and admit it or suck my dick. You can suck my dick either way tho.
hardinparamedic: soundguy: Because it's only prevalent in the deep south. We're already partly energy-dependent on a bunch of ignorant, backward, goat-raping, woman-hating, bronze age religious zealots from the middle east. What do we gain by switching our dependence to virtually the same culture in the southern states aside from shorter shipping time? You really want to make those people "Saudi-prince-level rich"?Tell me how you really feel about Mississippi, bro.But, seriously. Kudzu-as-biomass Diesel production could be the thing to help remedy some of the crippling poverty in the area, especially the Mississippi Delta (outside of native american reservations, it's one of the poorest areas in the US)
Jument: wrong but I kind of doubt hemp would revolutionize any industry at this
Jument: born_yesterday:Seriously, are there any actual products that hemp will really and truly revolutionize?
Jument: born_yesterday: When hemp takes it's rightful place in the various industrial roles it can fill, I hope that's when even non-smokers realize what a travesty it was that this plant was ever criminalized.Yay, better rope for everyone!Seriously, are there any actual products that hemp will really and truly revolutionize? We have access to a lot of excellent natural and artificial materials these days. Can you name a few where hemp will make something that's far and away superior to everything available right now?
