New state law will allow farmers to grow hemp
Oregon is about to become the first Western state to permit its farmers to grow industrial hemp.
But there are a couple problems to be confronted before Oregon becomes a Hemptopia by the Pacific: It’s still an illegal crop, according to the federal government.
Local enthusiasm for hemp’s possibilities was also evident at a three-day Emerald Empire Hempfest, featuring music, speakers and other entertainment, that wrapped up Sunday at Eugene’s Washington-Jefferson Park.
Are these the same hippies who don't think we should cut down trees to build houses? Isn't it weird how they realize that you can indeed take a grown product, harvest it for use and then by replanting continue to have a supply.
If only these people would chain themselves to poor marijuana plants about to be harvested because by their logic if you keep cutting down the pot plants eventually you will run out completely.
