So many uses for legalised hemp

'President Trump Legalises Hemp' runs the headline of this snippet.

Legalizing Hemp is huge. Hemp plants maturity is 120 days vs. a tree = 30 years. Hemp plants take radiation out of the soil and consumes lots of CO2. They release lots of oxygen - and produce more pulp than trees to make paper. Fibres strong enough to build fighter jets, produces more oil than a whole field of peanuts, doesn't need pesticides, and the oil can run vehicles. Natural fibres for clothing, and oil for paints/varnish - so many uses!
