Straight from sidecarsally. Comments?NETHERLANDS Dutch police raided a cannabis farm this week and seized 47,000 plants worth an estimated street value of 6.3 million dollars. However, a little research on the farm would have revealed that it was a legal science experiment conducted by the University of Wageningen.
Simon Vink, a spokesperson for the university, said the experiment involved testing the suitability of cannabis fibres for the production of textiles, paper and synthetic materials.
The project had been underway for years and was in its final phase, which would have allowed us to introduced these new fibres to the market. We will probably suffer big losses; we are busy doing the calculations. More than half the plants were destroyed, Vink said.
The worst part is that the seized and destroyed plants were unfit for cannabis production due to an extremely low content of THC, the main psychoactive ingredient in the plant So even if the university decided to scrap the experiment and sell the weed to a bunch of kids, they probably wouldnt even get stoned from it!
The university is busy talking to the police about recovering costs. How about you guys just give us 20 million dollars and then shoot yourselves in the face?
Cannabis (hemp included) is a wondrous product with endless usability. Ford Motor Company built a hemp plastic car in 1941. Hemp oil can be used to create biofuels to reduce our dependency on fossil fuels. All that, PLUS it gets you high? Jesus!
