With all of the many thousands of oil spoils, and now the fracking that is causing so many health problems.
My solution to this is; www.hempmotorcompany.com A company that my wife and I are starting, to utilize industrial hemp seed oil for fuel in diesel engines, to replace petroleum. Hemp diesel otherwise known as biodiesel is making a come back now that Maine has gotten smart on hemp policy!
Using a vegetable based fuel is renewable, and non-toxic.
A recent example of how petroleum oil spills dessimate the earth, see how this BP oil spill in Lousianna killed off over 800,000 birds in the first year, and erroded the island that these migratory birds breed.
If you were to spill a tank full of hemp, it would turn in to nitrogen and effectively help the flora grow.
It is truly a reasonable estimation that industrial hemp has the potential to be a MUCH bigger market than the medical marijuana market. Medical marijuana, recreational marijuana, are small fries compared to the industrial hemp industry that we are soon to have.
— Here is Maine, legislation titled LD 4. The governor vetoed it, but 2/3rds of the house over-rode his veto;
5/12/2015 – This Bill, having been returned by the Governor, together with objections to the same pursuant to Article IV, Part Third, Section 2 of the Constitution of the State of Maine, after reconsideration, the House proceeded to vote on the question: “Shall this Bill become a law notwithstanding the objections of the Governor?”
ROLL CALL NO. 63V
135 having voted in the affirmative and 6 in the negative, with 10 being absent, and accordingly it was the vote of the House that the Bill become a law notwithstanding the objections of the Governor, since two-thirds of the members of the House so voted.
Sent for concurrence. ORDERED SENT FORTHWITH.
I suppose this is just another political suicide on the part of LePage.
ME Gov. Paul LePage vetoed the hemp bill, but the veto was just overridden by the legislature! WAY TO GO MAINE! http://bit.ly/1QK1IyW
