Hemp as a renewable resource: Commercial production of hemp is permitted under legislation in Victoria, Tasmania, Queensland, ACT and Western Australia. Many are using it as a building material as it is flame, water and pest resistant. It is also naturally non-toxic, an incredible insulation material, strong, lightweight, breathable and energy efficient. Hemp is not the same strand of plant as marijuana.
