Brain:

Hemp definately has its place (maybe) but it is far from being the savior or
the Earth.  Kudzu would be a better alternative. You can eat it, make paper out
of it, it is a nitrogen fixing plant, it covers the earth very rapidly and
goats love it.  You can probably smoke it but you would'nt get a buz.

Do you realize that you have to deforest land to plant hemp?  Hemp is a
nutrient depleater and takes nitrogen (unlike a legume).  Please check out "Pot
for Paper: The Hemp Movement" and read my take on the issue at
