Hemp has proved to be one of the most versatile organic materials on the planet. The capacity of the hemp fibre to produce paper and bioplastics makes this plant an alternative to other, more polluting sources. Nowadays, both motor and aviation industries share the idea of using hemp as a substitute for carbon fibre or other materials.
The planet is facing a serious pollution problem due to the production and use of plastic materials derived from non-renewable sources. Not only the energy spent in producing them is a problem; the material itself has an impact on the environment, caused by the wrong management of waste plastic.
Guam, a white sand island on the North Pacific, replete of huge palm trees with branches dancing to the sea breeze’s tune and sorrounded by crystallin waters with emerald reflections, has been the last country to legalize recreational use of cannabis. As unincorporated territory of the USA, the island is one of the 17 non autonomous territories under the supervision of the United Nations Decolonization Committee.
The Andean country had already decriminalized possession of small amounts of cannabis, and now it takes a giant step with regulation of medicinal cannabis. A great victory for Peruvian patients and activists, like the users of @fundaciondaya, who will be granted legal and safe access to cannabis, although they won't be able to legally grow it.
