Opinion: Hemp could help

Cannabis can cure a lot of ills:

Global warming, the climate crisis

One Solution: plant hemp cannabis in hundreds upon hundreds

of thousands of acres across the globe and reduce carbon emissions.

As Greta Thunberg maintains: “follow the science.”

Plastics are clogging up our rivers and oceans and filling our landfills. Grow hemp and use the stalks and fiber for biodegradable items such as plates, bowls, cups, straws, cutlery, napkins, to-go containers; total elimination of fossil fuel products

Housing shortages? Use hemp Hurd and make hempcrete homes with lime and water added or dig up the adobe dirt and mix with straw and water and cob your home. Try the adobe/hemp combo. Hemp is strong as concrete. Henry Ford knew its strength and substituted hemp for steel.

Sick and tired of using pharmaceutical drugs for what ails? then consider Cannabis Sativa, Indica and Hemp CBD to reduce the pain, keep appetite, help memory, promote sleep, lessen stress, boost immune system, anti-inflammatory, anti-anxiety, anti-spasmodic.

Cannabis is the plant of added-value for food, medicine, textile, housing, fuel, on and on... so why are we so draconian in our laws, and so slow to act upon its virtues and remain in fear of “reefer madness?”

In 1970 Nixon categorized all cannabis, hemp without THC and cannabis sativa n indica with THC as Schedule 1 drugs.

Thanks to the 2018 US Farm Bill, hemp was released from this scheduling and is allowed in respective state governments and Indigenous tribes, to grow freely.

The Cannabis “high” weed is still being regulated.
