Could also be used to roll other hemp products into tube shapes in a pinch. :smilenod:

Yes. However on the fun side France has developed a hemp free of psychoactive chemicals specifically for agricultural use. There have been problems with police arresting farmers growing  it and pot heads stealing whole fields!

Well, yeah, but it's the French. :-P

Actually, I kinda' see potential police scepticism if the plants look identical. One could then camouflage some of one among the other. At least, I'm sure people would try.

I owned a Touchscreen Kindle once. Never again, I'd try to turn the page and it'd skip several pages forward. A simple manual device would do.

Given that most people struggle with legible handwriting already, the added complexity of cursive is an unnecessary burden. It is more practical and efficient to stick to standard print writing.

Hardware doesn't have the same feel as paper, and a book does look handsome on a shelf. A computer just crunches numbers, a book is just crunchy.
