Out of the Blue

I was just marveling the other day about the unseasonably warm weather we've been getting here... and now I just found a tick on Hudson the wonder dog. Happy February!

No, it isn't propaganda.

Yes it is.
You are confusing marijuana advocates with people who actually have a clue.
No.

Just because something isn't used often doesn't mean it isn't better...
You are correct.

I seem to think you are underestimating just how unfairly politicized hemp was and still is.

Yes I do. I also know the production of products being made with/from hemp started decreasing well before it was a political soap box.

In fact a lot of the things you say are better than hemp require oil to manufacture and are thus not sustainable like hemp is.

True. But just because something requires oil does not make it bad. And even though hemp is very versatile and resilient and grows readily and easily…to grow it on the scale we would need to replace other products would require fertilization….which fertilizers are currently made cheap thanks to products based off oil. So your oil argument is not valid.


the process can be refined for products made with hemp as well

True it can be refined. But you can only do so much with the same material, that is why new materials are invented every day.

as it can replace wood fiber used for paper, etc

The majority of hemp advocates have abandoned the paper argument. You should to. It is simply not efficient for high volume, low cost production of the same quality of paper type products.

which is usually obtained from 100+yr old trees that wont simply grow back next harvest year.

No they are not. Clear cutting and the like for production has not existed in the US since the 60’s. Clear cutting is only done for land for new development, farms, ect. Trees are now farmed. Tree companies only take 1/3rd of the trees on the land at the time, and plant back more than they grow. By only doing 1/3rd of the land at a time it keeps the eco system thriving and the trees grow back fairly fast. Most tree farms are completely renewed in 20-30 years.

That is also why for new antique furniture is really expensive. Old old trees are not really cut down anymore for product, only clear cutting. As a result for old, textured and stylish looking wood for antique furniture they have to get it from reclaimed wood (recycled, previously used in production wood…old walls, floors, ect).


lso many other tensile materials can be made as well without producing environmentally damaging chemical runoff like other plastics - and it can be used in the manufacture of many other products like soap, cloth, medicine, oil, fuel, etc. etc.

Again..crap crap crap. Just because you can make something from it does not mean it is good/the best solution.


seriously man, if you want to debate this kind of thing you need to study actual facts instead of whipping some opinion out of your ass and calling it "objective truth PERIOD"

I am a Chemist. Would you like me to break out chemical reactions, some simple college algebra enthalpy and entropy calculations for you to follow and throw in some statistics too? I can make it all simple for you, freshman level stuff so you can understand it if you would like. I know the facts….when I stated my opinion about what I thought might happen I made it clear it was an opinion. The other stuff is stone cold simple facts.


its very easy to spot your bluff, so i wouldnt advise a career in poker

*cough*….easily proved…I just doubt you could follow it. Go take a couple freshman level chemistry and physics classes and then come back and talk to me and I will explain it to you with hard evidence.
