    Exclamation Drug War Idiocy – Importing Hemp from China

    China is currently the world’s largest producer of hemp and exports fiber and seed products to the USA. World trade opportunities are growing rapidly for hemp seed, hemp oil and fiber, textiles and other products of the plant cannabis. Only the USA is being left behind, a consumer, not a producer, of new green agricultural products that provide food, fuel and industrial and textile fibers.

    American hemp entrepreneurs are crushed beneath the heels of tax-paid bureaucrats. Green, tax-paying jobs and products are being sacrificed to the whims of the DEA, a self-serving government agency working to maintain its power and enormous budgets.

    Hemp seed is arguably humankind’s single most nutritious food. To its shame, the DEA tried to ban Americans from all access to this food in the 1990’s. The agency, by administrative fatwa declared that because of THC content, no hemp product could be even imported, much less grown domestically.

    The federal bureaucrats were finally dissuaded from their dishonorable hack only by the courts. Their efforts to deprive their countrymen of nutritionally supreme products such as hulled hemp seeds were declared to be over-reaching by one of the few good court decisions of the drug war. A federal court rejected the DEA’s strangle-hold on hemp food.

    The current situation where Americans import hemp seeds and products from China (along with Canada and other countries) illustrates, in microcosm, the USA’s perilous economic situation. China sells 4 times more to the USA than it buys. American money and assets flow to China, now holder of nearly a trillion $ of US debt. Chinese goods and products, including foodstuffs such as hemp seeds and fiber products, flow to the USA. Dollars to pay for them flow to China.

    For Americans to be importers, not exporters, of such an agricultural product is ludicrous. American farmers are the most productive on earth, at least when not crippled by inane federal restrictions. The free market in the USA for the potentially highly valuable hemp crop has been crushed by the DEA.

    Like the apparatchiks of the Soviet Union telling farmers what to grow, the bureaucrats at the DEA exercise total control, backed by vast powers of punishment.

    A dozen states, Oregon the latest, have passed laws specifically trying to give their farmers and entrepreneurs the freedom to produce and profit from hemp. But there is a catch. No American can currently grow even one cannabis plant without breaking federal law and risking ruin by the DEA.

    The success of the Canadian company Manitoba Harvest is impressive. It demonstrates the type of innovative, entrepreneurial and jobs-providing enterprise the natural resource of hemp can provide. FoodBizDaily reports:

    Hemp foods are one of the hottest health food trends in North America, and a fast-growing Canadian company is demonstrating that there is a healthy appetite for nutritious hemp foods overseas.

    Due to a vigorous international sales initiative over the past few years by Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods & Oils, exports of their hemp foods beyond North America have skyrocketed more than 500% over the past year.

    So far in 2009, the company has exported products to eight nations (in addition to the United States) including Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Germany, Italy, United Kingdom, Ireland and Japan.

    Such success could be emulated by American hemp farmers and entrepreneurs, were they free of the bureaucrats and ill-conceived laws that restrict them. Growing hemp for nutritious food, strong material, fine fabric and alternative fuel is the most basic kind of productive activity, adding value by feeding, clothing, sheltering, transporting and employing people.

    For Americans to be denied participation in this productive, innovative, worldwide hemp boom is a disgrace. This is a clear example of another way drug war idiocy is crippling the USA. Supposedly living in the land of the free, Americans are not free to grow, thrive and prosper this extraordinary plant resource.

    The advocacy group Vote Hemp provides useful political tools, such as an automated way to write your congress person and request support of the Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2009. Let American be growers, producers and entrepreneurs of hemp based products! We will export hemp foods, fibers, and fuels to the world!

    My region was a big producer in the past. The ropes made here were world famous.
    There are very few people producing today. I've never bumped into a hemp field.
    It's an interesting plant. I remember having some hemp sacks and mats that were in use for years. Very durable.
    Mulberries suffered the same fate. There were millions of trees before, and today you can hardly see any.

    I went to a farm show years ago and one of the displays was a bio-diesel tractor engine running on diesel made from hemp oil. It was very cool and thought provoking.

    Most farmers here in Southern Indiana and Kentucky would love for hemp to be legal as it would be another cash crop. I have read in the past about it being very draining on the certain loam soil types, but would be a good alternative for poorer soil areas.

    Some of the ditches around here have hemp that grows wild in them left over from WWII days when hemp was produced here. As you should know hemp is not the same plant that hippies smoke to get high.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    There are facebook groups where people publish photos from the region, that have accumulated large amounts of photos over the year a lot of them historical. I remember seeing many featuring hemp, however they are mostly poorly marked so searching is difficult. I thought about downloading and cataloging the pictures when I get the time for it.
    For the moment, a quick search landed these two results:

    Tired Medical and recreational use of cannabis

    Medical use of cannabis and for recreation have long traditions in Europe. hemp was grown and used all over Scandinavia, in several viking graves there are found hemp, also buds, and buds are used for medical or recreational use.

    Resistance against legalizing use of the whole herb sticks to ideas that were already outdated in 1970, and it binds up enormous ressources for the police, the courts and the prisons, in addition to the unfair and harsh persecution of the users.

    The resistance is based on pettyness and lack of knowledge breeded with the commercial interests for the pharmatic industry.

    Cannabis is a medicine plant with traditions from all over the world for thousands of years and is far less harmful than alcohol and tobacco.

    Some people say ok to medical cannabis prescribed by a doctor. But pardon me, all use of cannabis is medical, the recreational use is also medical as it i.e. prevents patological syndromes in PTSD-patients from escaling, and so many suffers from more or less bearable PTSD-syndromes that are not diagnotized as PTSD, they selv-medicate.

    As well as others selv-medicate with beer. It would be absurd to claim a receipt from a doctor to have a beer, and as cannabis a million times have been proven less dangerous than alcohol, only in smallminded pettyness and in lack of scientific knowledge there are found arguments against normalizing the situation for cannabis users. It is as avbsurd as the civilian invasjon, and do not forget that its the same powerbases behind both the civilan invasion and the insane war against cannabis.

    I have collected a few thousand scientific up to date links on medical and recreational use of cannabis here;

    PTSD: https://www.facebook.com/notes/legal...99642056957683

    Cancer: https://www.facebook.com/notes/legal...92271774361378

    Alzheimer: https://www.facebook.com/notes/legal...65386753716547

    Etc, etc; More collections of links related to various diseases at the source page.

    Then comes Granny Crows List, the world largest library on medical and recreational use of cannabis, all scientific reports, a few hundred thousand articles... https://grannystormcrowslist.wordpress.com/
