    Absolutely, and it is no Pipe Dream. The Reasons to use Hemp for Fuel are numerous.

    First off of course is less pollution.

    Then there is the fact that we need our corn to feed live stock and eat our selves.

    Also I once read, and Am pretty sure it is true. That to Grow Hemp for Fuel you do not need good farm land. It can practically grown in beach sand.

    I am for anything that can lessen our dependance on Foreign Energy sources. Period.

    It is clearly not the answer.

    I day dream of the Day we can call up the King of Saudi and tell that Piece of Shit that it's all over. We don't need his fucking Oil anymore, and therefore we are no longer going to support him like raging Hippocrates. I just don't want to see our Economy set on Fire on All sorts of non Cost effective, Green Energy Ideas. If it works and is practical from an economic stand point. I'm for it. If we would have to cover the states of Montana, Wyoming and North and South Dakota Combined with Turbines just to equal the Out put of a couple Nuclear Power Plants, and pay 5 times as much to turn on a light. I'm Not for it.

    Pragmatism.

    Not sure what you just said.

    However as far as clearing toxic lands. Not sure what you mean, unless you are referring to the well Documented fact that it used to be common Practice for Farmers to Rotate in hemp every 4 years or so because it restores the soil so well.

    You can read the Letters of a couple of our founders in which they talk about coming across some find Smoking hemp. Jefferson or Adams I believe it was. There not talking about pot like we think of it. They are talking about hemp that was being grown on farms, both to make rope, and help the soil.

    I'm not Polish, but I'm a huge supporter of growing industrial hemp here. The restrictions on it are ludicrous.

    Hemp is an excellent crop because of its varied uses, food, fuel and fiber. It doesn't require as much water as most crops, doesn't deplete the soil like most crops and does not require the pesticides that traditional crops do.
