This is so friggin cool

For those of you that don’t know, Hemp is one of the most amazing plants on the planet but it’s also among the most minunderstood.  Many people think it’s marijuana, which is inaccurate, they’re both different species of the same genus, not only is hemp incapable of getting you high but if you plant it everywhere the polen from it will ruin the quality of the marijuana plants that are illegally planted in New England cornfields.  So if someone is serious about fighting the war on drugs they should repeal the ban on hemp cultivation.

Not only can the oil extracted from the hemp seeds be used readly as biodiesel but the energy contained in hemp oil is vastly more concentrated than that from corn, ethanol is a net energy loser.  There is so much that can be done/made from hemp you almost wonder if it’s illegal because it’s too useful.

I wonder how much architecture could be changed if buildings could be made with a material stronger than concrete but with 1/6th the weight, I also imagine it would take a lot less fuel to transport hempcrete, isn’t that a good thing?
