In a last minute addition to the Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act of 2012, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) has submitted an amendment that would legalize the production of industrial hemp, a potential new bumper crop for U.S. farmers.

“Industrial hemp is used in many healthy and sustainable consumer products. However, the federal prohibition on growing industrial hemp has forced companies to needlessly import raw materials from other countries,” Wyden said in prepared text. “My amendment to the Farm Bill will change federal policy to allow U.S. farmers to produce hemp for these safe and legitimate products right here, helping both producers and suppliers to grow and improve Oregon’s economy in the process.”

chuckle.gif I doubt it'll pass but at least it's been introduced hi5.gif

Quote:“This is the first time since the 1950s that language supporting hemp has come to the floor of the House or Senate for a vote. The last time such language was presented was the Miller’s Amendment to the Marihuana Tax Act,”

Not in my pristine country. That's marijuana. It kills everyone on contact. vic.gif God bless America for putting pot smokers in jail for life.

Yes, hemp is dangerous, but a little radiation will make you healthier and give you a shiny fur too. fatman.gif

As much good as it would do for the economy I'm sure it was added because someone wants to kill the bill and what better way than to add marijuana legalization to it?

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

If the PTBs really wanted to help the economy they would decriminalize marijuana all together. There is no other plant as versatile as hemp, which is why it is illegal to begin with. It offers to much independence to the minions.
