DRUG-DRIVING isn’t something that should be advised. But this “cannabis car” might just be the exception with its super-strong body that’s resistant to dents. The Renew Sports Car is a $40,000 (£30,000) motor made from 100 pounds of cannabis and is lighter than fibreglass. Car nut and TV presenter Jay Leno got behind the wheel of the new Renew Sports Car and even smashed his fist on the bonnet to display the anti-dent properties of the cannabis cockpit. The roadster is the brainchild is Bruce Dietzen, who’s ploughed $200,000 into its development. The car is made from cannabis hemp, rather than marijuana, and has very limited traces of THC. What’s great about hemp is that it’s strong, lightweight and biodegradable. And because hemp uses carbon from the air when it grows, making the car is carbon neutral – the footprint of a standard car is 10 tonnes. It can even run on biofuel made from recycled agricultural waste to add to its green credentials. Florida-based Renew is selling the unique model in three forms depending on how much performance you want. There’s the Canna 225 with 225bhp or a Canna 525 with more than double the power. The Canna EV is also available and can be configured from a conservative 80bhp commuter right up to a “blistering dragster”, according to the firm.
