Legal Hemp Around the CornerAugust 17th, 2006 by Alex
Hemp bares little resemblance to marijuana. You’d die from smoke inhalation before getting high off this stuff. What you can do is turn it into a wide variety of cool products – clothing, cosmetics, paper, rope, jewelry (think hemp bracelets) and more. The bill is aiming to avoid federal restrictions by requiring that farmers sell the hemp only to California processors. This will prevent interstate commerce and the big nose of the feds getting involved.
The only dissent comes from the Office of National Drug Control Policy, saying that marijuana plants could be easily hidden inside industrial hemp crops. These naysaying douchebags were most likely interviewed in this fine TV show.
Within a few years, there will hopefully be many varied products of high quality, home-grown, industrial hemp.
