Cannabis of course is known as marijuana and pot. Always be associated with drug users and stoners. But if you can put away that stigma, we find that cannabis has four times the cellulose value as corn, making it a potentially good plant for ethanol production.
Now then, personally I will not do drugs or smoke pot so this article is without consideration for the stoners in the world or their potential support of this plant for ethanol. If cannabis grows so well all around the world it does make sense to look into its use for the making of ethanol.
If cannabis can be manufactured into Ethanol then our nation modify it to make it work better and use those genetic differences which permit low water in production to insure that and now we don’t get price spikes during times of drought in the ethanol we use for principal interest. Additionally if the plant can be used to “get high” then we need to modify it so that wont occur or that the leaching into the soil or waterways does not contain high levels of THC as it that i see problematic.
If we further modify this cannabis weed then we should instead make it with terminating seeds until we know cures have done, other wise it turn into a “super weed” and take over natural cannabis along with close genetic species of weeds. In a price think tank recently a gentleman mentioned that;
“Ethanol/bio diesel almost certainly the fuel associated with the future for the rotary, eccentric crank, 4 and 2 cycle engines that run our cars boats trains and generator sets etc. Yes it burns far cleaner than the crude oil based hydrocarbon heavy fuels we use at present, and will minimize the pollution.”
