You could very easily engineer the THC out of the plant. I really wish one of the biotech companies would just do that... so that the next time we get one of these besides the point arguments we can just use that instead.
Understand, I want the drug legal. Its silly that pot is illegal. I see it the same as booze or tobacco. And I even think they're too heavily regulated. The taxes of Tobacco are too high and the regulations on Alchohol are too stiff. All of it needs to be relaxed to respect consent.
As to pot, I merely find it annoying that people keep telling me how amazing hemp fiber is when really it can't be that amazing. It can't be the only plant with those properties. And its beyond obvious why people keep bringing the damn plant up... its offensive. Every time I hear that it is an insult because the people making the argument are lying by omission.
Again... I have no problem with pot being legal. Legalize it. But talking about hemp oil, or hemp fiber, or nano whatever with hemp isn't going to legalize the drug. Its not relevant and it actually offends the few of us with working brains.
Just be honest about it. You don't need to trick people. And even if you did, this trick isn't going to work. If you insist on tricking us... come up with a better trick.
I'll finally say that I do not doubt that the scientists found these properties in hemp. I would suggest that there are likely many plants that can yield the same result. And even if there weren't which is extremely unlikely... the path of least resistance would be to simply engineer the THC out of the plant.
At this point, I'd just like the biotech companies to do that only because I find these dumb arguments by the legalization lobby to be tedious.
