Hemp can help save the world in lots different ways. It produces a stronger fibre than anything else; you can just about build anything out of it; it costs almost nothing to produce; and is an annual crop that needs no chemicals.

We must stop these evil bastards. We owe it to our children and the millions of children they have already killed.
