Re "Greenhouse solution," letter, Nov. 27: The person who recommended
breathing less to help restore the ozone layer sounds helpless about
man ever changing to a less selfish lifestyle. Our cars and
practically all of our motors run on fuel that pollutes our planet.
Our paper and our building materials come from trees.

Hemp is a viable alternative. Hemp fuel is cheaper than petroleum
fuel, does not pollute and cannot be monopolized. While the Supreme
Court wonders about the medical value of marijuana, there is no wonder
about hemp's industrial value. Unfortunately, a war of ignorance is
being waged against it.

Hemp is hope, not dope.
