A blend of HGH, prevacid, and THC. What are they using on you geriatics nowadays anyway?

BTW, Hurst [sic] has been dead for over sixty years. I doubt he is still much interested in keeping hemp down.
No see, the problem is you posted this as FACT

This storage requires a lot of (mostly manual) handling of the bulky stalk bundles. Another issue is that the entire hemp plant cannot be economically prepared for paper production. While the wood products industry uses nearly 100% of the fiber from harvested trees, only about 25% of the dried hemp stem the bark, called bast contains the long, strong fibers desirable for paper production.[42] All this accounts for a high raw material cost. Hemp pulp is bleached with hydrogen peroxide, a process today also commonly used for wood pulp.

That's a shame. It might be part of a solution. They are using it as an ingredient in car body parts, replacing some plastics.

We could use it to reduce the amount of cotton we grow. It seems as though its use as a textile is about the most cost effective.
So instead of posting like you know what your talking about, just say, Hey, I pulled this bull**** from a blog, maybe right, maybe wrong.
