Remember when the US was considered cool and happening? John Lennon once compared NY to Rome, and moved here to be near the action. Unfortunately our government tried to deport him on a drug charge, but Lennon stayed cool, retained a lawyer, and got his greencard. Soon afterwards Rome began to burn, Lennon was gunned down, we began to lose our cool. Too bad Lennon kept his…
Today our government continues it’s domestic drug war as it battles overseas for position. The biggest change for the Globe in the last 25 years it turns out, is the one we can’t see; our ozone layer.

Once we take those first steps in our fight against global warming, the eventual restarting of US hemp production will be much more feasible, perhaps one day, even a no brainer.
After that we can go all out green. Just think we’ll be known as a lean green global machince. Hey, won’t that make us cool, once again.
