The above link will take you to a website where a Canadian company has built and plans to market a hemp CAR. I wonder how the car holds up in crash testing. Henry Ford developed a car using hemp that was so strong he could pound it with a sledge hammer and it wouldn't dent! After viewing videos that have been posted on this website with regards to hemp I have come to the conclusion that we need to change the logo associated with the promotion of hemp ( not because I don't like it ) because of the association that a large majority of people make when they see a hemp/marijuana leaf. They think of lazy dirty hippies smoking pot for recreation and that turns them off right away and we really need those people to get on board with the program! I KNOW that is a big part of the problem why it has been so hard educating the public about the benefits of hemp and all it can do for us and why petitions are largely unsigned. People are afraid of being associated with marijuana because in most of the country it is against the law for one reason and the other is because they don't want to be associated with pot smoking hippies. We HAVE TO CHANGE THAT in order to make any progress! Thank you Ddc for all of your hard work to educate people about hemp and for opening my eyes to it's benefits.
Tell me what you think! We are missing out on so many benefits as has been brought to my attention. Let's change the image and we might actually get somewhere. That's my thought. What's yours?
