Peak Hemp

In Uganda, a stick of hemp is 500 shillings. Google claims that, as I write it, that means $0.19. Well …

Many people when they have just bought a stash of them, as I have seen, will start off throwing away the roaches. The last ends that have some hemp in them but are too short to smoke practically. They throw them away.

Then, at some point, they have gone through most of their stash. They realise that roaches should not be wasted. At this point, they have passed “peak hemp”. Of course, peak hemp is as much a realisation as it is an event.

Peak hemp is for sure. But so is peak oil.
