Overcoming The Hurdles To New Sources Of Energy

What about using hemp for fuel?

People have attained 500-1000 gallons per acre.

Hemp doesn't need as much water and no pesticides as corn and other food crops

Hemp would not effect food crops since it is not used for food

Hemp would create jobs since it cannot be grown due to antiquated prohibition laws

Hemp can also be used to replace other petrochemicals such as plastics

Hemp is better for the earth than solar or wind since we don't have to mine rare earth metals AND we wouldn't have to modify our current fuel infrastructure while being carbon neutral.

S.D. Council Appoints Medical Marijuana Task Force

MattthewCScallion,
I really hope that you will learn to let go of the archaic thinking that you cling to as a result of subscribing to outdated government propaganda and expired data which has been refuted.

If you are so worried about these facilities popping up so close to schools and churches, then you must be opposed to 7-11's being so near schools since they sell drugs (Cigarettes and Alcohol) which are far more addictive and deadly. As a parent wouldn't you prefer a facility that only sells to adults as opposed to a "pusher" working the street corner who will sell to ANYONE?

With regards to your last point, "Medical Marijuana" is no red herring. It has been proven to help relieve symptoms of MS, HIV, Cancer, Etc...

Plus marijuana appears to have anti-cancer properties, something synthesized THC does not. Please allow yourself to open your mind by reading the following article.

The CA voter spoke in 1996. The time to debate medical marijuana and prevent these collectives from operating expired when 215 was passed. The only thing this council should be doing is working to get the city of San Diego compliant with what the VOTER DECIDED 13 years ago.
