Did you know that in 1942, the government not only encouraged the growth of hemp, but made a short film all about it?
Since one of the many uses of hemp was for cordage, or rope...the government encouraged farmers to replace other crops by growing hemp for the use of cordage and rope, mainly in Navy vessels. Hemp had been used for this purpose for many years.
Here's my question...why can't the farmers grow hemp for use in making biofuel, instead of using food crops for this purpose? I mean, I'm not very smart about these things, but it seems to me that we would be better off in using our corn and other food crops for FOOD , and finding an alternative for use in making fuel. Watch this short film and see if it makes any sense to you, OK?
Like I said, I'm not the brightest bulb in the pack, but I don't know why we don't utilize this remarkable plant as we once did! What do you think?
While we ponder this question, why don't we get a fresh cup of coffee, sit on the patio, and enjoy this beautiful Spring morning. OK, my friend?
