That would be extra incentive to sign a merger deal. How about just the decomposing hemp and herb plants, stems and leaves? Lots of fuel to be made, right in California. And I'd wager it would be quite advanced! In areas where water is scarce, hemp and herb can grow and yield quite a lot per acre in areas from Sacramento to Bakersfield. All that fighting about water rights just went away cause you can grow hemp for advanced biofuel production, save on water and make the earth more breathable all at the same time.
And then Monsanto will develop a genetically engineered variety that makes ONLY oil seed and the pollen will get in the wind and ruin all the greenhouses, and instead of the Federal Marshalls raiding your garden, it will be Monsanto's lawyers demanding you pay them royalties...the future is fraught with peril, sambubelah!
my Souix Indian cousins on the reservation have been trying to get permission to grow hemp for
industrial use for years. the government always stops them because of the DEA.
although the is no drugs in it it is basically the same plant.
