Industrial Hemp Investing Question

I am interested in supporting the industrial aspect of the hemp industry – production of paper, car interiors, upholstery stuffing, carpeting, work clothing, fuel, etc. – by investing in companies which manufacture these things from hemp. I am a  horticulturist who cares deeply about our earth’s health and see this as an opportunity to help. Could you please steer me in this direction? Robert Bourne

Hemp for Diesel?
Is it true that the Diesel engine was originally designed to be fueled by hemp oil?

#3.  Is hemp a viable fuel to move vehicles? How would the internal combustion engine be affected by this fuel? Would the engine have to be revised?
