  •  I'd really like to see a push (4+ / 0-)

    in the midwest for the growing of hemp.

    For what ever fucked up reason hemp cannot be grown as a cash crop.  But, hemp is incredibly versatile and good for the soil and would a good contribution economically to the midwest and to the ecology of the soil.

      People tend to forget that it North Carolina was building its cities partially on revenue from the tobacco industry around the same time Detroit started hemorrhage people to the South.  So I agree, and it would be ironic if Michigan incorporated hemp into a rebuilt economy.

      After, tobacco doesn't really have a medical application, whereas pot does.

      were run on hemp.  Maybe Detroit could start making more diesels along with the new Volt and the others?
