One of Henry Ford's first cars ran entirely on Hemp ethanol and the body was constructed from Hemp plastic, which was 10x stronger than steel.

Industrial Hemp is one of the most versatile plants known to man. Hemp fiber is used in the production of paper, textiles, rope, sails, clothing, plastics, insulation, dry wall, fiber board and other construction materials; while Hempseed oil is used as a lubricant and base for paints and varnishes, as well as in cooking and beauty products.

Awareness is everything. In my opinion, the most valuable plant on the planet.

The only thing keeping us from creating sustainable industries with the use of hemp is corporate greed! So many industries fight this so that they can continue to make their $$$$$. They have already made a fabric from hemp that is indistinguishable from silk, and the uses go far beyond what you yourself have noted. The suppression of this plant and it's uses is nothing short of criminal to the environment and well as humanity. Crying shame!

Thanks for enlightening those not in the know.

With Biden as President maybe that'll change.

Unfortunately Biden has already said he would not take it off the list. As I've said criminal.
