The "Green Machine" Is a Car Made Entirely Out of Hemp

Former Dell exec Bruce Michael Dietzen has built a roadworthy car entirely out of hemp.

The car was built upon a Mazda base frame and runs on bio-fuel made from agricultural waste — an energy source that leaves an even smaller carbon footprint than electric cars. According to Dietzen, building his “green machine” took about “100 pounds of woven hemp” and cost him around $200,000.

“I live in Florida, hemp is still illegal to grow so I had to import the woven material all the way from China because we still don’t have the facilities that can make the hemp fabrics,” he told the New York Post.

New Bill Would Let California Cops Use Oral Swabs to Test If Drivers Are High

New Bill Would Let California Cops Use Oral Swabs to Test If Drivers Are High

California lawmakers introduced a new bill Tuesday that would allow law enforcement to use oral swab tests in instances they suspect driving under the influence of marijuana.

Senate Bill 1462 was introduced by Republican Senator Bob Huff of San Dimas. The proposed test is administered by a handheld device that uses an oral swab to detect the presence of marijuana, cocaine, meth, and pain medications.
