Notice to Missouri Legislators on Industrial Hemp
Copy of what I sent to Missouri Legislators involved in the Industrial Hemp Legality in MO.
Thank you for supporting Industrial Hemp for Missouri.
I have 3 Inventions that relate to Industrial Hemp: Harvesting, Hempcrete Building, and Lignin removal. (lignin has value in energy and as supercapicitors used in electronics).
I have shared this information with my business advisers, people in the hemp industry, and others: who are and have been involved in Building Industry, Hemp Production, and Hemp Processing. One of which said my invention could be the "holy grail" needed to bring the Hemp Industry Mainstream.
To be blunt: If you guys don't get off your butts and pass Industrial Hemp legislation these other companies I'm working with will use my inventions in other states and Missouri will miss out on being "First To Market." (During the HB830 committee meeting I presented at this was mentioned by a committee member.)
Missouri is full of great minds and businesses that my inventions will bring in much needed jobs and income as well as reducing our states carbon footprint (which is rated 6th from the bottom by the DOE of all the USA states.)
There are opportunities available in re to Industrial Hemp that will enable Missouri to: "Show Them" instead of lagging behind and having them "Show Me" or us. Lets get off the sidelines and be leaders instead of followers.
Scotty, StLouis, MO of the planned future business MOhemp Energy- (if Missouri legalizes Industrial Hemp). If not I'm taking the business and possible millions of revenue to another state. MOhemp Energy could just as well be: COhemp Energy or TNhemp Energy. I love our state but I cannot bring these inventions to market without being able to grow hemp here in Missouri.
