The solution to our economic woes: we should grow pot in Alberta

Almost every day I read something in the news about how bad the economy is. We need new renewable resources.

We can get on board with solar power and wind power for starters. There is nothing stopping us except big oil companies. Oil runs our province.

I suggest we also start growing pot.

Every single bit of the plant can be used. Then it can be planted in a few weeks and grown again.

The medicinal users are numerous. The seeds can be used for oil and just plain nutrition. The stems can be used to make paper and clothing. We could revitalize the toilet paper industry.

Pot can be grown indoors or outdoors.

People can work in the industry, lots of people.

Oh, and the government can make so much money taxing the smokers.
