Ron Wyden’s hemp amendment fails

Senator Ron Wyden
This is disappointing…


Hemp: Sen. Ron Wyden’s effort to include a provision in the farm bill to formally classify hemp as a legitimate crop failed Thursday as the Senate finished work on the bill without considering his amendment.

The official reason was that the “hemp amendment” was not germane because it edged into the Controlled Substances Act. Wyden’s amendment would have excluded industrial hemp from the definition of marijuana. He hoped to attach it to the farm bill.

    SCANNED ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS OF BILLS OF SALE ETC. OF NEGRO SLAVES ON THE HEMP LAWN FARM ON THE BENSON PIKE IN SHELBYVILLE, KENTUCKY. THE SLAVES ARE BURIED WITH THEIR MASTERS AND WITH SOME CONFEDERATE SOLDIERS in the family graveyard on Hemp Lawn Farm.

    What is the connection between out-lawing slavery and out-lawing marijuana and hemp?

    Keeping marijuana and hemp illegal is an excuse to arrest black men and use them for prison labor, now that slavery is illegal. (or is it?)
