BTW, "dope" commonly refers to heroin.
TruthOnPot.com – A new sustainable housing project in the northwest of Scotland will feature industrial hemp as a main building material, reports Green Building Press.
The ecofriendly material is the main component of a prefrabricated wall system called Hembuild – a mixture of the plant’s woody core and a lime-based binder.
The system was supplied by Hemcrete Projects, an English housing company that specializes in hemp-based construction.
So far, two prototype houses have been completed in the Achabeag township, both with very different designs.
A license requires a number of things from you:
1) that you do not have a previous criminal record
2) that you do not grow in view of too many people
3) that you grow low THC (the drug ingredient in cannabis sativa, the latin name for hemp) variety
4) that you know what you are growing for and can tell who you will sell the end product to
5) that you pay the Government license fees to check all the above

Hemp is a usefull plant for a lot of things but it's no second wonder and wont change the world.
Illigilizing it was stupid but ligilizing it isen't going to change much.
But it is a good thing for freedom if we should say something good about it and thats pretty much it.

I tell you what. If a hemp producing company ever goes public on the stock market, I am in. I think you are wrong and there are farmers with land just waiting for them to work out the laws.

Even though V22tech is having a real hard time explaining himself without getting all red faced and spitting, his point is valid.
He thinks that no farmer would grow "hemp" when he could just as easily grow "marijuana".
He just doesn't comprehend the process is all. It's common for those who have been indoctrinated with the fear of Anslinger and his crowd to cling to myths. He might think "Reefer Madness" was a documentary instead of an insanely hilarious comedy.
