Marijuana as gas
Scientist turn Marijuana into Gas
Scientist Run's car on Marijuana
A backwoods scientist turns, ordinary, everyday marijuana into gas. A nasa scientist has broken marijuana down into it individual components, and found another use for the drug. Would you believe that after all these years the weed known as marijuana can be use as a high octane, clean burning fuel ? By extracting the juice from the marijuana plant and processing it through a simple process, this scientist has found that you can get half a gallon of fuel, from as little as a couple of pounds, for gas for your vehicle. This fast growing, easy to harvest weed can replace about 50 to 75 percent of our oil requirements without putting a strain on our food supply. This NASA scientist stated that it is commonly known in the scientific world that marijuana makes a better burning, and higher grade fuel then corn. This is also known in the circles of our Government.
What has stopped its use in the oil industry is the war on drugs, Government officials feel that if marijuana was used as fuel that it would contribute to more illegal use of the drug. But this popular NASA scientist says, that what they are really scared of is that without it as a member of the highly illegal substance's group that Americans would find out that it, and many other drugs have other uses that would make the governments argument invalid. The Government is afraid that the other use's will far out weights the problem the different drugs has caused to our society. But what really scares them is that with the other uses, there would be no need for a drug war and the drug war industry that has kept and made many people rich would prove to be unnecessary.
True or False
This scientist compare marijuana to the peanut, and said that if nothing else, that the fuel derived from marijuana could be use as a form of bio fuel. This fuel could be used to power planes, ships, trains, and other forms of transportation, taking the stress off our oil supply. This scientist said that marijuana can be grown anywhere, indoors or outdoor, which the government sees as a problem. It would allow everyday people with any amount of space to participate in the growing and harvest of the weed. Economies of that scale are hard to control and the government believes that it would contribute to drug use.
This within itself, could expand the new industry into a 100 billion-dollar industry almost overnight. But what they don't tell you, is that it is already a billion-dollar industry. People are already growing it indoors and outdoors, and that it is already contributing to the economics, of the over all society. You see It keeps jails and prisons full, It keeps lawyers busy, and it keeps cops employed. What they are scared of is that as an industry it would change who profits from the marijuana. The other added benefit is that it would drop the price of a pound of marijuana, or will it make the price go up, you know the supply and demand factor always have to fit in the equation. But the biggest thing they are afraid of is that it would take the advantage away from the drug dealers and drug importers, who at this time are making all the money in this underground industry.
Remember the everyday suppliers don't have planes and ships to import the stuff, so you can bet your bottom dollar it would affect someone's income high up in the food chain. So like with anything, there is always a better way, or a better product or a better use, but that does not mean a thing if the right people are not getting paid. But then again that's just my opinion.

Little Know facts about hemp as a regenerative fuel source
So who's Growing all the hemp
The funny thing about using hemp as a fuel source is the fact that it is not a stable source in our food supply. This means we can grow as much as we would like and it would not rob us of a food source or cause the price of food to go up because of the demand as a food. I always thought that using the corn as fuel was a dumb idea because we eat corn, our animals eat corn. The real reason behind them using corn is because it is subsidized by our Government. People get paid extra to grow it and I bet if you followed the money trail it would lead right back to some present or former congressman.
The next reason we should use hemp is that it grows almost anywhere, it grows like a weed no pun intended. Throw some seeds but a water source and you will have plants for days. I think it could actually be the crop that can get us off of fossil fuels, so now you can probably see why it was outlawed, it is actually a disruptive resource that has the potential to change life as we know it, if our leadership would let the cat out of the bag.
Go hard, go green, but like always that’s just my opinion.
