HEMP IS AN EXCELLENT BIO DIESEL FUEL! USA Oil Barons got it outlawed to protect oil derived synthetics in the 30’s. But THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES SHOULD LEGALIZE HEMP for their own advantage.On ANDREW MELLON, founder of the Gulf Oil Corporation: “He knew that cannabis hemp was an alternative industrial raw material for the production of thousands of products, including fuel and plastics, which, if allowed to compete in the free-market, would threaten the future profits of the oil companies. As Secretary of the Treasury he created the Federal Bureau of Narcotics, and appointed his own future nephew-in-law, Harry Anslinger, as director. Anslinger would later use the sensational, and totally fabricated, articles published by Hearst, to push the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937 through Congress, which successfully destroyed the rebirth of the cannabis hemp industry.
The Congressional Budget Office, Department of Defense, US Department of Agriculture, and others have determined that biodiesel is the low cost alternative fuel option for fleets to meet requirements of the Energy Policy Act. [End quote.]So, my question is, why should American farmers be paid in tax dollars NOT to farm, or if they grow too much wheat, it is bought by the government with OUR tax dollars, shipped off to some third world nation where, often as not, it sits in rat-infested warehouses until it rots and never reaches the people it was meant to feed? Worse yet, keep sending it to Russia, which then stockpiles it in vast underground shelters for the coming nuclear exchange with America that Russian defectors still claim the Russian military sees as inevitable. Certainly, our own government has made no similar provision to protect American tax-payers — but they have built over 90 underground shelters for “continuity of government” and protection of the corporate elites.
