Cannabis grows on nearly every continent on Earth and has been used for a wide variety of things other than smoking it, although this is how most people see it. A car body was produced out of it once and even hit it with a sludge hammer to show its toughness, something you would not also do to a luxury car. You bring up a touchy point with activists for this plant being labeled as stoners, and it is a stigma that not everyone has the stones to try and shake off in the public domain.
Cannabis supporters are a tiny part of life on Earth. But most stoners whether cannabis activists or not and whether they have thoroughly studied the many uses of this plant or not do believe that Marijuana is the most significant substance in the world and that the plant it comes from is the most magnificent plant on Earth. There is actually a lot to learn about medical marijuana as well. Imagine the number of disease it can eradicate if the scare on the substance is erased and people start to actually give cannabis a serious look.
Another person commenting on this statement said that I have in my life witnessed enough stoners to base my comments on reality and dismiss myself from your demands of political correctness. I do not believe they are deserved. I do not accept your apology for trying to justify pot smoking or your digression from reality. I will admit your return to the responsibility to yourself and the others around you and your admission to personal weakness leading you to a life of drug use.
Furthermore, if cannabis can be made into Ethanol, then we need to modify it to make it work better and use those genetic differences which allow for low water in production to ensure that we do not get price spikes in times of drought in the ethanol we use for fuel. Additionally, if the plant can be used to “get high” then we need to modify it so that will not occur or that the leaching into the soil or waterways does not contain high levels of THC as it would be problematic.
If we further modify this cannabis weed, then we need to make it with terminating seeds until we know what we have done. Otherwise, it will become a super weed and take over natural cannabis and other close genetic species of plants. In an online platform, recently a gentleman mentioned that you could see how difficult it is for cannabis activists to make any headway with such stigma attached.
In fact, the influencer was considering a comment from a qualified professional on the use of Cannabis without to be harvested for ethanol for its abundant cellulose properties and would make an outstanding crop that can be used in many applications. The good thing is it is a very hardy plant and can virtually grow without much of a fuss. It can even thrive in arid regions without much water. But no one will discuss cannabis in this way because all the drug users and stoners have given it this stigma, which no one can deny.
