Here is a $450+ million dollar a year question: Why does Forty-fourth President Barack Obama prohibit US farmers from growing HEMP when First President George Washington, who also GREW HEMP, declared 'Make the most of the Indian HEMP seed and sow it everywhere!'?'The President takes an oath to faithfully execute the laws of the United States. As important, if not more important, that oath also specifies that they uphold the Constitution. They can refuse to enforce a law if they believe it is unconstitutional since the Constitution, as the supreme law of the land, takes precedence over acts of Congress. Hence, Congress is under a duty not to pass unconstitutional laws, the President is under a duty not to enforce unconstitutional laws, and the courts are under a duty to strike down unconstitutional laws.'- excerpt from RedState.com July 11/12 article - Moreover, Prohibition of HEMP is a crime against humanity. HEMP seed is the most complete food source in the world.- Public Knowledge - See Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.'The 9th Amendment to the US Constitution seems to provide firm legal ground for us to eat by our best understandings, asserting "The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people." Thomas Jefferson certainly advised us to claim and exercise the right of food choice when he wrote,“If people let the government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as are the souls of those who live under tyranny.”'- excerpt from FoodIsTheKey.com | The US Constitution takes a different position -

I did not even remotely read all this. I got to your first line and stopped...

When Monsanto wants to patent the seeds for hemp, it will then be legalized nationally.

Industrial hemp should be legal as an agricultural product. The sooner it is totally legal, the sooner we can watch the total destruction of marijuana production, as genetics will rule and the woody weed hemp will obliterate the resin producing marijuana plant. This can be hurried by having targeted genetic engineering of the hemp plant and seed.

Potheads on Topix and elsewhere think legalizing hemp will help in their use and promotion of the now refined drug marijuana. It shows how marijuana keeps them delusional. With legalized hemp production, these dopeheads will have to smoke bales of the stuff to feel high and the high will be from lack of oxygen.
