of course I know it. Henry Ford himself was not a big fan of gasoline. Unfortunately, Rockefeller......Standard Oil......convinced Ford to abort his plan for renewable biofuels in favor of oil. This alone makes it obvious that the oil companies knew "from the start" that hemp and other bio fuels were a threat to their industry. Besides, in the twenties, bio fuels weren't entirely feasible. The technology to utilize hemp didn't exist then to the extent that it does now. But if ever there was a time to start it's NOW.

actually your are wrong on thing bout corn it produces more energy than is used to make it plus the residue from the corn/sugar cane powers the plant that produces the ethanol so its a win win situation with corn/ethanol.
It would only take six percent of the United States land to make the United States Energy Independent! By growing hemp, The U.S. would be able to produce enough fuel -- economically feasible fuel
