Same species, different animal.
I recently sat down with Hawaii Senator Mike Gabbard, Hawaii Representative Cynthia Thielen and Kelly King, Vice President of Pacific Biodiesel to interview them about their views on the upcoming legislation on hemp. You can see it here: www.HempInternet.com
My dear friend Denise Key of iHempHI.com who is a grand activist for the legalization of industrial hemp and who initiated and facilitated these interviews said that today that some opposition to the growing of industrial hemp remained, evidently based on distortions. So I send a few emails to my friends to help them tell the Chihuahuas from the Timberwolves:
WHY YOU CAN’T CONTROL IT
“[T]hey (DEA) cannot regulate naturally-occurring THC not contained within or derived from marijuana-i.e. non-psychoactive hemp is not included in Schedule I. The DEA has no authority to regulate drugs that are not scheduled, and it has not followed procedures required to schedule a substance. The DEA’s definition of “THC” contravenes the unambiguously expressed intent of Congress in the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) and cannot be upheld” The PDF from the Court is also attached. Here is the DEA press release that the quotes in the second page of Keith Kamita’s testimony came from: http://www.justice.gov/dea/pubs/pressrel/pr100901.html
WHY YOU CAN’T GET HIGH FROM IT
