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)

I'm picturing "People of Wal-Mart" on gold-plated Hoverrounds waving bibles and screaming about gay marriage and evolution. It's a terrifying vision.

hardinparamedic: Jument: HempHead: 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?

Paint makers can return to using hempseed oil. The law forcing manufacturers to Changing from hempseed oil based paint to lead based paint was a horribly bad decision that still effects us today.

Hempseed oil can also be used in cars, etc. making disposal of old oil easier and less dangerous to the environment.

Paper can be made from hemp plants instead of having to cut down trees.

Paint: Will they actually do it? You may not know this, but nobody uses lead in paint anymore. We have latex now which is a pretty biatchin' product. Will hemp paint be better/cheaper?

Cars: again, will anyone do it? Would hemp oil be superior? Would it work in modern cars?

Paper: You may also not know this, but trees are farmed for paper these days.

I could be wrong but I kind of doubt hemp would revolutionize any industry at this point.

Actually, I wonder why we're not using Kudzu to make biodiesel.
