I was vending at the Washington DC NORML event selling Hempzels™ their team had converted a Mercedes Benz to run on hemp seed bio diesel fuel. It smelled like french fries, was noisy but didn't use typical gasoline. They had no idea where they were going to start so I suggested coming up to Hempland Township, they did it better and went to Henry Anslingers grave in Johnstown, Pa first than came to Lancaster, York and toward Philly, New York - 13,000 miles to prove a point.
I met Steve Groff earlier at my Hemp Meeting with the farmers in Yoder's Restaurant. He was growing a similar plant "kenaf" - people would say some guy in southern Lancaster is growing hemp and we found out it was sun hemp. Years later Steve is now CEO of Hemp Innovators out of Holtwood, PA besides a Cover Crop Farming Guru.
I invited Les to provide a demo which he was happy to participate he is know Executive Director of Keystone Cannabis Coalition. .

Thank You Hemp Car!
Another wonderful way to show the true potential of the "New Billion Dollar Crop" as Popular Mechanics told us in 1939

Farmers were interested, other nations were growing it, our DEA was trying to impose other restrictions in round about ways. My attitude was to treat hemp like any other vegetable. Know your farmer but seeing and smelling this Mercedes run down in Washington DC was another reason to question the narrative once you uncovered the history, chemurgy and the possibilities of this renewable annual crop.
It's not the first time I've discussed or tried to answer questions about it
From the Article posted up top - knowledge has changed the laws.
Steve & I met prior when I hosted the Hemp Meetings with the Lancaster Farmers earlier in the year. He embraced the idea that his farm would eventually be growing hemp, he is HEMP Innovator
