Hemp is one of the most promising resources out there, and we are doing virtually nothing with it.
The United States congress still does not recognize the difference between marijuana and hemp, a fact which is keeping the plant from reaching it's true potential. One acre of hemp can produce as much paper as four acres of trees. It takes 6 months for a hemp plant to grow back while it takes a lifetime for a tree to grow. Hemp could replace petroleum for hundreds of plastic products and oils, and is also a very promising biofuel. So then why aren't we using it?
