The U.S. Won't Ever Legalize Hemp

RE "U.S. needs targets: PM"

If the U.S. would sow less than 10% of its farmland into hemp, they
could grow enough to produce enough methanol fuel for all their energy

Look it up. They could still have huge SUVs and still drive like
maniacs, yet still end their dependence on crude, end their
oil-securing wars abroad, and reduce emissions. This would also help
the health of the entire planet. The U.S. won't ever legalize hemp and
use it for fuel because, put simply, they are a rogue state run by
criminal oil barons.
