Hey! I was just curious why this group isn’t making a major push towards a stimulus package going towards hemp cultivation and production? It would stimulate the economy in many ways ranging from the plants ability to produce fuel (in abundance) to its ability to provide a cheap raw resource that substitutes plastics, wood, paper, textiles and food.
It is a baby industry still so the stimulus would all go towards entrepreneurial businesses starting up in hemp as well as tax breaks for companys investing in land or production. Because growing hemp at home and producing it at home is going to be cheaper than transporting it with oil based technology and oil based products, it shouldn’t be hard to get corporate investment and private investment (we are all losing our shirts anyways, might as well invest in something that has the potential to make you big bucks)
The value of North Americas energy needs is measured in something that starts with a T. I am pretty sure a local trillion dollar cornerstone industry is exacly what the world needs in this time of crisis. Thanks -Hugh
