HIGH SOCIETY: Henry Ford’s Suppressed Hemp Car

The main reason marijuana was prohibited in the 20th century (by corporate interests seeking to promote oil demand and petroleum based plastics) was to suppress hemp fuel and fiber production. Both are inexpensive to make and naturally decentralized. Marijuana prohibition enabled small groups of people to profit from the capital intensive petrochemical alternatives that dominate our political process and economy today.

– We might think that our ethanol and biodiesel “flex-fuel” systems are all very cutting edge, but biofuel development is of course nothing new. Way back in the 1930’s, Henry Ford was hard at work in the alt-fuels sector, and in 1941 he constructed a hemp-fueled and hemp-bodied prototype car. The “plastic” body panels were composed of 70% cellulose fibers, including industrial hemp, mixed with a resin binder, and apparently they were pretty sturdy.

Hemp will decentralize our economic system and return wealth and control to the majority.

Hemp & marijuana both come from the same plant, cannabis sativa, which…

  1. In 1937, Marijuana prohibition became a tool to deport Mexicans from Tx., the first state to adapt such a law. In 1945 or 46, Government contracts for Nylon fiber were cancelled, what was Dupond to do? In 1947, Harry J. Anslinger went to the U.N. to outlaw Hemp worldwide, coincidence? I have found no proof, but I don’t believe coincidence to be quite that convenient.
    Rudolf Diesel originally designed his engine to run on Peanut oil, allowing farmers to grow their own fuel. The production of Ethanol is another scam, due to the distilling process, the effective yield is only about 25%. Vegetable oil yields a 97% return, so why would anyone produce ethanol as fuel? Because the distilling process requires one to use fosil fuels and there is a “law” requiring the use of 5-10% ethanol in gasoline in many states. The year round requirement to have 10% ethanol in gasoline, reduced the fuel mileage in my 2000 Explorer to 14mpg, down from 16mpg, increasing fuel use by 12.5%, net gain, zero. Since most ethanol is made from corn, some see this as a farm subsidy, I don’t, it’s theft.
    The electric Car is also not new, there were many in the early 1900’s, but were restricted by range, Lithium is changing that.
    Good find Dr. B.

    • Thanks, onnovocks. Another little known fact is that Ford’s hemp processing plant was located in my birthplace: Iron Mountain, Michigan. It’s nice to know your place of origin is famous for something.

      What really gets me is that the combustion engine was designed to run on ethanol. It doesn’t really run that well on gasoline, which is why you end up with a lot of additives.
