When the narcotics board was still up I made a great thread about Hemp being the real Economic Stimulus Package, and unfortunetly got canned because some members weren't nice.
That's old news though.
Yes Hemp can save the planet. The biggest untapped cash crop of our time as far as I am concerned. The ammount of products and profit that could be made from this substance are astounding, and yet it goes un-noticed.

You are not referring to Industrial Hemp. Please don't get this thread closed by discussion of non-Industrial Hemp.

Hemp is considered an illegal narcotic in the United States. I started a thread on recent studies of the correlation of cancer and pot smoking. My thread was removed immediately. Why is this one still standing? A double standard at ATS?
Sorry OP, but I am a bit ticked that mine was removed and yours stays. There is no free speech in America and especially not on ATS.

It was necessary to move a thread you created titled, If Pot Prevented Cancer You would read about it, Right? which was originally posted in the Medical Issues & Conspiracies forum, to the Trash Bin forum. masqua has initiated this action, and included this message about it:

the only problem is if we all start using hemp to everything then the nitrogen would be sucked out of the soil faster than we could replace it. The plants would not grow after a few seasons.
The system is not sustainable on a mass scale.

If you use rotational crop farming practices, you can maintain its growth. Legumes, squash, zuccini, cucumbers, are all able to get their nitrogen from the air and they are great for redepositing N back into the soil. For two years its a hemp farm and for two years its a soybean farm. Repeat.

hemp is illegal to grow in the united states. There really is no valid reason for it, all the government can come up with is “It is a marijuana plant, and marijuana is illegal, and is a drug

As I said, I understand the argument.
But the question is the context of the question.
Meaning, can hemp salvage our current life-style or are we willing to take a HUGE step backwards?
And I think the implications of such a cash-crop based living aren't really thought out by people who are shocked to realize that hemp can purify water.
It literally means the tearing down and restructuring of our entire system.
Personally, for me, I'm not sure.
One hand says burn it down. The other says but we've come so far.
