, hemp is an neat plant, i heard this somewhere that hemp is better for making paper then wood, googled it, found this
* Hemp growers can not hide marijuana plants in their fields. Marijuana is grown widely spaced to maximize leaves. Hemp is grown in tightly-spaced rows to maximize stalk and is usually harvested before it goes to seed.
*Hemp can be made into fine quality paper. The long fibers in hemp allow such paper to be recycled several times more than wood-based paper.
*Because of its low lignin content, hemp can be pulped using less chemicals than with wood. Its natural brightness can obviate the need to use chlorine bleach, which means no extremely toxic dioxin being dumped into streams. A kinder and gentler chemistry using hydrogen peroxide rather than chlorine dixoide is possible with hemp fibers.
*Hemp grows well in a variety of climates and soil types. It is naturally resistant to most pests, precluding the need for pesticides. It grows tightly spaced, out-competing any weeds, so herbicides are not necessary. It also leaves a weed-free field for a following crop.
*Hemp can displace cotton which is usually grown with massive amounts of chemicals harmful to people and the environment. 50% of all the world's pesticides are sprayed on cotton.
*Hemp can displace wood fiber and save forests for watershed, wildlife habitat, recreation and oxygen production, carbon sequestration (reduces global warming), and other values.
*Hemp can yield 3-8 dry tons of fiber per acre. This is four times what an average forest can yield.
but sonic, hemp and marijuanna are two different plantss, pots not made from hemp unless you made a typo,, congrats on the straightedge life syle, I quit doing hard drugs been clean for over a year now., harder then pot or alchohal or cigs... and if i didnt have cigs and pot i probably wouldnt of quit, I know its stopping one habit with another... but better smoking a joint once in awhile then having a hoover vacuum cleaner nose.
cigs r worse they actaly use pot for people that have somekinda of illness i think its a type of cancer i cant remeber now, but i would rather smoke a cig then pot, i can bearly remember the last time i did smoke pot lol
