With everything else going green, it should be no surprise that even loudspeakers can be made of some sort of sustainable material. We just didn't think that material would be hemp.

Omega Speaker Systems claims that its "HempCone" drivers offer "improved acoustic properties" superior to paper or plastic, according to Dvice. We'll have to take their word for it (or not), because we don't know what kind of methodology was used to draw those conclusions.

Maybe someone will get a pair to accompany Meridian's $16,000 CD player because, as some might say, one would have to be high to buy one of them.
