Could Marijuana be used to help the environment?

    If it was legalized and taxed, the tax dollars could go to environmental protection. The illegal smuggling of marijuana by the Mexican drug cartels causes massive environmental damage in the forms of forest fires and huge underground drug tunnels. ($28273)

    A bigger concern is hemp, which is illegal under the same law as marijuana. Hemp would be a perfect candidate for use as lignocellulosic ethanol, as it grows fast to huge sizes and has a high cellulose content. Cellulosic ethanol has been reported to be a carbon neutral fuel, thanks in part to the plants consuming CO2 while growing.
