Bigup David! We can now slay the Goliath of a housing problem we face

Kiff Invention Boet! The STRAWJET Inventor Name: Mr. David R. Ward

The History Channel 2006 Modern Marvel of the Year Invention

The Strawjet is a farm implement that processes straw (wheat, flax, sunflower, tobacco, hemp, etc.) in the field (after the plant has been harvested) into a mat, similar to a large bamboo window blind. This is used to construct composite building panels in much the same way as fiberglass or carbon fiber; however, the Strawjet uses a binder made from paper pulp, clay and cement rather than plastic resin.

Now we can build many more cannabrick homes :)

All we need to do now is convince the gangsters in government to buy a few and actually use them to build actual houses!
