Canvassing for Opinion - aka "Blairs Brain on Cannabis"

IMHO prohibition sentiment requires inherent addiction to status quo, an incapacity to visualise beyond the here and now and a desperate desire to know others might feel the same... Reform is not revolutionary, rather it is evolutionary. Having survived banging your head against a brick wall the evolutionist relishes having stopped. / Blair

Hemp fuel pushed to ease smog

Hemp fuel pushed to ease smog - Press 5 December 2001: "Christchurch's winter smog problem could be eased by the use of hemp as a fuel, the Mild Greens say.

Mild Green spokesman and hemp enthusiast Blair Anderson was among speakers on a Government climate-change panel at a meeting in Christchurch yesterday.

The panel was gathering information to help the Government develop policy in conjunction with its plans to ratify the Kyoto Protocol on Climate Change next year.

Mr Anderson, who has a contract to buy some of the first commercial hemp to be grown legally in New Zealand, said a tax on carbon emissions would make hemp fuel economic.

The Christchurch entrepreneur hopes to set up a business producing bio-fuel from hemp crops, which produce tonnes of organic material per hectare. Hemp fuel, which can substitute for diesel, would help solve Christchurch's winter smog problem, he said.

'The aroma of hemp fuel is familiar to many people and a lot more pleasant than diesel,' he said."
