Weed facts: One acre of hemp will produce as much paper as four acres of trees.
A real shame our government prefers to expend the trees despite there being safer means of filling our already dangerous consumption. There are more logically expendable plants such as hemp we can use, it just seems environmentally right to go about it this way. If we can create huge hemp farms that are better at meeting our vicious consumption cycles it seems like a no-brainer to want to go about it the most rational way, which would be going for the resource that is not only easy and cheap to produce from, but also as quality if not better than trees. Aside from the the other obvious gem, that we, well, we breathe, and so.. we need trees around. Why can’t we have more scientific literacy in congress now not later? :/ make my brain hurt sometimes.
