  • Hemp would be the best, renewable source for making paper. Wouldn't it be nice to make paper out of a weed that grows 10-15 feet tall in just a few months? Add some miracle grow to that, & we're talking 20-30 feet. I like the idea of saving trees. Hemp does have traces of THC, but you don;t want to smoke THAT! That would be like smoking cardboard. Marijuana & hemp come from the same family, but are two different cultivars. Anyhoo, paper is just one in a million things that would benefit from hemp. You can practically make ANYTHING from it...it would save our economy. Hemp is an amazing plant.


    Too bad people are TOO stupid to realize that it won't get you high!

  • hemp is actually used in many products. Hemp contains none of the chemical property of pot. It's all been removed. I have to laugh cause I have friends that say I would never allow my family to use hemp and see their kids running around wearing hemp and shell necklaces and braclets from the beach.

  • I think i'm still allergic to it ROFL!!! Although I used to make hemp jewelry. I had to use a sealant spray to wear it, but usually I made it for freands, but wore latex gloves so my fingers wouldnt' break out...and yes i"m allergic to pot. Tried it once when I was 13...NEVER EVER EVER EVER again!

  • Before having kids I was a hemp activist. I could go on for hours about this magnificent plant and all of it's uses, but since I am walking out the door right now I will just say that I think Hemp is the most usefull plant in the world and our country is insane for allowing it to be imported legally but not allowing it to be grown here. Talk about screwing over our farmers. Hemp Hemp Hooray
