Is this brilliant yet controversial plant natures solution to our chaos?

What is hemp?
Hemp is a part of the Cannabis sativa class and is often associated with marijuana, a plant used for medical and industrial purposes. Hemp was first grown in central Asia as early as 280 BCE and used in ancient China to grow and produce foods, textiles and paper. Hemp sits alongside bamboo as some of the quickest growing plants on earth. Today, this plant is estimated to have over 25,000 different uses with the potential to rid many industries of fossil fuels as a far greener alternative.
