      DNA to Help NAB Drug Dealers
      Red-Handed Report

      Reuters
      04-AUG-99

      LONDON (Reuters) - A new test based on DNA science can tell if
      people have
      handled cannabis, but it is so sensitive that there are fears
      that innocent people
      could be incriminated, the New Scientist said Wednesday.

      It said researchers had identified DNA sequences within the
      part of the plant cell
      responsible for photosynthesis -- the chloroplast -- which are
      specific to cannabis
      sativa and are not found in any other species.

      The discovery by researchers at the University of Strathclyde
      in Glasgow makes it
      possible to take a swab from someone's hands and test it for
      the cannabis DNA
      sequences.

      "This test is as sensitive as you can ever get," Adrian
      Linacre, one of the
      inventors, told New Scientist. "Theoretically, it could pick
      up the presence of just
      one molecule of cannabis DNA."

      Because the test multiplies the amount of DNA, it works on
      minute samples,
      unlike existing techniques.

      But this acute sensitivity is causing concern.

      Chris Evans, of Surescreen Diagnostics which markets drug
      testing kits, said the
      test could easily trap the innocent.

      "If you have been driving a second-hand car and a previous
      owner has been using
      cannabis, you could get enough on your hands to test
      positive," he told the
      magazine. Bank notes could also carry trace amounts of the
      drug.

      Linacre said he had calibrated the test so that only
      relatively large quantities of
      DNA gave positive results.

      He is now developing the test to detect the DNA profiles of
      different strains of
      cannabis, such as those grown in South Africa or Thailand.

      "We will be able to use genetic evidence to link different
      batches of cannabis and
      trace them back to their original source," he said.

      MARIJUANA-EATING FUNGUS SEEN AS POTENT WEAPON, BUT AT WHAT COST?

      MIAMI -- For decades, the hard part for drug agents stalking Florida's
      marijuana growers was finding their crop. The growers weave their plants
      among corn stalks and even tomato vines to foil aerial searches. In swamps,
      growers make berms out of muck and chicken wire and plant their crop, leaving
      fat, black water moccasins to stand guard.

      Hidden in Florida's lush landscape, the camouflaged marijuana plants often
      foiled the small army of law officers, helicopters and drug-sniffing dogs.
      Now, the new head of the state's Office of Drug Control hopes to kill
      Florida's lucrative marijuana business in the very ground in which it
      thrives, by someday dusting suspected areas with a marijuana-eating,
      soil-borne fungus called Fusarium oxysporum.

      HEMP FACTS EVERYONE SHOULD KNOW!

      1) Hemp is among the oldest industries on the planet, going back more than
      10,000 years to the beginnings of pottery. The Columbia History of the World
      states that the oldest relic of human industry is a bit of hemp fabric dating
      back to approximately 8,000 BC.

      2) Presidents Washington and Jefferson both grew hemp. Americans were legally
      bound to grow hemp during the Colonial Era and Early Republic. The federal
      government subsidized hemp during the Second World War and US farmers grew
      about a million acres of hemp as part of that program.

      3) Hemp Seed is far more nutritious than even soybean, contains more
      essential fatty acids than any other source, is second only to soybeans in
      complete protein (but is more digestible by humans), is high in B-vitamins,
      and is 35% dietary fiber. Hemp Seed does not contain THC.

      4) The bark of the hemp stalk contains bast fibers which are among the
      Earth's longest natural soft fibers and are also rich in cellulose; the
      cellulose and hemicellulose in its inner woody core are called hurds. Hemp
      stalk contains no THC. Hemp fiber is longer, stronger, more absorbent and
      more insulative than cotton fiber.

      Woody's Case Goes Supreme

      Three years ago actor and environmental activist Woody Harrelson allowed
      himself to be arrested for planting four seeds of industrial hemp in
      Beattyville, KY. His intent was to challenge the laws of the state of
      Kentucky which made no distinction between industrial hemp and marijuana.
      Following a long and arduous path through the legal system, the Kentucky
      Supreme Court has agreed to review the state statute.

        Humboldt Brewing making beer with hemp, naturally.

        There's a new strong ale coming from Arcata's Humboldt Brewing Co., brewers
        of the popular Red Nectar Ale, that's a real zinger: Hemp Ale.
        It's true. Hemp seeds are an ingredient in the beer, says Humboldt President
        Mario Celotto, the former Oakland Raiders star who moved north to Arcata and
        started Humboldt a decade ago.
        The seeds are added in substantial quantity to the mash, the mixture of hot
        water and ground barley that begins the beer-making process.
        "Of course, you can't get high from these seeds," Celotto says. As anyone who
        has sampled the illegal weed knows, THC, the potent narcotic chemical, is
        found in quantity only in the leaves, buds and flowers of the female hemp
        plant, not in the seeds.

        Hemp For Animal Bedding

        Industrial hemp hurds have been used or proposed for a variety of industrial
        purposes, including for use in construction materials, paper, and plastics.
        Under current market conditions and technologies, however, the most
        economically feasible use for industrial hemp hurds may be in agriculture.
        This use is as animal bedding. Industrial hemp hurds appear to be
        price-competitive with wood chips, fine wheat straw, and other types of
        bedding used for valuable thoroughbred or breeding horses, or used by horse
        and other pet owners willing to spend more on their animals. These materials
        are favored over cheaper alternatives since they are more absorbent, and
        thus, reduce illness.

        RETREAT, RECOVER FROM THE DRUG WAR

        There is a new political wind blowing across the United States that some
        elected officials are beginning to notice.
        The "drug war" no longer has carte blanche with the public. By every
        measure, the drug war is failing and is now creating new and larger social
        problems. Polls show more of the public support legalization than believe
        the drug war will succeed.
        Political leaders such as New Mexico Gov. Gary E. Johnson are calling for a
        debate on the obviously failed drug policy. Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura
        has also called for reform and Hawaii Governor Cayentano led the fight for
        medicalization of marijuana in their last legislative session.

        Hemp, Farming, and the Environment

        We can stop cutting down trees, free ourselves from dependence on foreign
        oil, and revitalize America's farming economy
        Throughout history, cannabis hemp has been a staple of industry.
        Traditionally its most important use has been to make cloth & rope; the
        fibers it provides are stronger than any other natural fiber. It has also
        been a vital part of papermaking; 75-90% of all paper in the world was made
        with cannabis hemp fiber until 1883. The Gutenberg Bible, Thomas Paine's
        pamphlets, and the novels of Mark Twain were all printed on hemp paper.

        Today, we've found a new industrial use that could be more important than
        paper, rope, or cloth. Using techniques similar to those used to make ethanol
        from corn, we could produce any grade of fuel from hemp. This could eliminate
        our dependence on foreign oil and lower the price of gasoline.

          A novel of evolution, metamorphosis & liberation
          Hello,
          My name is Vic Forsythe and I live in Boulder CO. In the late 60's I was
          arresterd for sales of three ounce of hashish and was looking at 25 years to
          life. I have gone though a lot because of that. Below is an short description
          of the first chapter of my book.
          "Birth of an Angel".

          The first chapter details his arrest for being in the presence of a sale of
          coke and was also charged with a previous sale of hashish to an undercover
          state narcotics officer and how he lost the woman he felt was his soul mate.
          He went through a jury trial on an entrapment defense, after the first trial
          was declared a mistrial for an hung jury, and facing 5 to life for
          sales.......the author went to South America where he ran a vegetarian
          restaurant/juice bar/youth hostel in Banos Ecuador for several years.

          After being extradited from Ecuador in 1974, the author made a deal for 1
          year in jail.

          After leaving prison, the author helped form the Rainforest Action Network
          and Eco-Solar in Mexico. "My belief that we now need a higher spiritual
          consciousness to save the planet and ourselves" is the primary reason behind
          "Birth of an Angel".

          Fellow Tokers!

          Most of you know by now that Senator Feinstein introduced a bill that would
          make it a felony to hyperlink your website to ANY website that had content
          that concerned marijuana. Just linking to High Times could land you in jail.
          Frankly we have built enough prisons for no reason other than to house the
          POW's of the Drug War and it is time to bring our boys (and grrls) home!
          Storm Williams is running for the Presidential nomination for the Reform
          Party and he has admitted to using recreationally and medically when he was
          disabled. To top it off, he grew his own crops! This is the kind of guy we
          need in the White House.
          All I ask is that you visit the marijuana issue link on his campaign web site
          at...
          <A
          HREF="http://reformist.com/WilliamsIn2k/issues/marijuana.html">http://reformis
          t.com/WilliamsIn2k/issues/marijuana.html</A>
          ... and make up your own mind.
          He is NOT running a pot spoiler campaign at all. He has many ideas that are
          geared toward We The People.

          Again, all I ask is that you check him out.

          Vote Reform,
          Crystal Moon

          Hey Now fellow hempsters,
          The High Preist Speaketh:

          "I beleive that Carl Sagan kept his pot use quiet because of what happened to
          Timothy Leary and others who spoke out. The issue was not that important to
          him so he ignored it and did his thing. I worked at a college for 9 years and
          I can tell you that many, many, many, of the intelligent productive people in
          High positions and in "Ivory Towers" use drugs. These people are above
          suspision and are seldom or never "TESTED" for drug use because of the
          assumptions made by society about "Educated People".

          Herb Hempstead

          QUOTE:

          "Well this just goes to show you that all of his scientific theories and his
          teachings are whacked out ideas dreamed up in clouds of illegal marijuana
          smoke."

          Pat Robertson on the "700 Club" concerning Carl Sagan

          Question:

          If Darwin was found to have smoked cannabis, would his cannabis use
          invalidate the theory of evolution?

          If Mohamed was found to have smoked cannabis, would this invalidate Islam?

          If GOD ALMIGHTY was found to have created cannabis, would this invalidate all
          creation, and all religion?

            This site was known as HempWorld's Wide Web until I sold the domain name
            "hempworld.com." That's right, sold. Outta here. It's no longer my HempWorld.
            In 1993, I started The International Hemp Journal - formerly known as
            HempWorld- as an industry newletter. It was the first of it's kind in the
            world! We paved the way for publishing business information about hemp, sans
            the intoxicating discussion of cannabis. In five years, we managed to publish
            23 issues of what became a 60 page color quarterly magazine that was a cross
            between Cannabis Canada and the Wall Street Journal.

            Now, if you want to read my tirades or read up on old issues of The
            International Hemp Journal, you'll have to come here to HEMP PAGES dot COM.

            Police efforts to harvest this year's marijuana crop

            Police efforts to harvest this year's marijuana crop before the growers do
            are in full swing in the forested hollows of eastern Kentucky and the
            cornfields of southeastern Ohio.

            Law enforcement agencies in both states are finding the drought of '99 is
            making their job easier.
            ''The drought has been beneficial for us,'' said Kentucky State Police Lt.
            Shelby Lawson, coordinator of the governor's marijuana strike force.

            ''When it's raining, it grounds our helicopters and planes. So the lack of
            rain has given us more days in the air, which is primarily how we're able to
            find the plants.

            ''On top of that, the plants themselves are doing just fine, while the stuff
            all around them is dying - which makes them stand out that much more.''

            Lawson's figures - which represent the efforts of the Kentucky State Police,
            the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, the Kentucky National Guard, the U.S.
            Forest Service and local police and sheriff's departments - show that 399,025
            marijuana plants have been confiscated in the commonwealth so far this year.
            A mature plant can generate a pound of marijuana.

            That's 140,945 plants ahead of last year's pace.

            WOODY HARRELSON CASE SCHEDULED

            Frankfort, KY - The Kentucky Supreme Court will hear oral arguments
            in actor Woody Harrelson's marijuana/(hemp) case at 11 a.m. Oct. 14 in
            Louisville.

            In June 1996, Harrelson planted four hemp seeds, which
            would not produce substantial amounts of marijuana's chemical
            intoxicant, in Lee County.

            Harrelson was cited for marijuanapossession, but Lee District
            Court found that the state law outlawing marijuana
            was too broad (by including hemp).

            Lee County Attorney Thomas P. Jones appealed the ruling, and
            in November, the state Court of Appeals sent the case back,
            saying there was no provision for the prosecution to appeal a
            ruling by a district judge.

            Jones appealed that ruling, asking the Supreme Court to take
            up the whole case, including the definition of hemp as marijuana.
            Arguments will takeplace at the Louis D. Brandeis School of Law,
            University of Louisville.

            STROM-MARTIN SUPPORTS INDUSTRIAL HEMP

            As the region's annual marijuana crackdown gets under way, a North Coast
            lawmaker proposed Friday to allow legal cultivation of industrial hemp, a
            non-intoxicating form of the cannabis plant.

            Assembywoman Virginia Strom-Martin said prohibiting growers from cultivating
            the potentially highly profitable hemp instead of the illegal variety "makes
            about as much botanical sense as prohibiting gardeners from growing poppies
            because one variety is the source of opium."

            Industrial hemp is a nontoxic plant that was grown legally in the United
            States through World War II, when it was used to produce maritime rope in a
            national "Hemp for Victory" campaign. Hemp, which can be legally grown in 30
            countries around the world, including Canada, France, Germany, Australia and
            China, has been used to produce paper, building materials, plastics and food
            protein.

            Strom-Martin, D-Duncan Mills, said Friday she will introduce a resolution in
            the state Legislature asking state authorities to consider legalizing hemp in
            California so it can be grown as an agricultural and industrial crop.

            Drug-Sense FOCUS Alert #420

            LA Times:
            Marijuana Can't Kill, but Marijuana Prohibition Does.

            Most drug policy reform supporters are aware marijuana has no lethal dose.
            Marijuana prohibition, on the other hand, can be quite deadly. A
            heartbreaking and EARTH SHAKING reminder came last week as the Los Angeles
            Times reported on a late night "drug raid" that killed a grandfather who had
            nothing to do with drugs. The police shot the unarmed 65-year-old Mario Paz
            twice in the back, killing him in front of his wife. Showing great compassion
            for the family's loss, police confiscated Paz's life savings, trashed the
            house in a search and dragged family members to the police station for hours
            of midnight interrogation.

            If there was ever a story that embodied all the horror the drug war can
            unleash on innocent people, this is it. Please write a letter to the Los
            Angeles Times thanking them for covering this important story, and urging the
            paper's continued pursuit of the harsh truth about drug war injustice and
            unconstitutional tyrrany.

            Thanks for your effort and support.

            New ACLU Report Debunks Workplace Urine Testing,
            Citing High Costs, Low Dividends, Junk Science

            FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
            Wednesday, September 1, 1999



            NEW YORK -- In a special report issued today, the American Civil Liberties
            Union is urging corporate America to drop workplace urine testing, citing
            evidence that the tests do not pay dividends in decreased accidents and
            absenteeism or increased efficiency and productivity.

            The 27-page white paper, Drug Testing: A Bad Investment, examines ten years
            of research and empirical evidence on drug use among workers, its impact on
            work performance, and whether urine testing is an effective tool for
            identifying drug abusers in the workplace.

              A district judge orders release of election results

              W A S H I N G T O N, Sept. 20 � Residents of the nation�s capital
              overwhelmingly voted to legalize marijuana use for medical purposes according
              to year-old ballot results released for the first time today after months of
              controversy.
              But at least one member of Congress vowed to work against legalization.
              Sixty-nine percent of those voting on Initiative 59 in November 1998
              voted yes, according to referendum results issued by the city�s Board of
              Elections and Ethics Friday upon orders by U.S. District Court Judge Richard
              Roberts.

              GOP attempted to block the Washington D.C. vote count

              KPFK reported this morning that the GOP attempted to block the Washington
              D.C. vote count on its medical marijuana initiative. A federal judge said,
              "no," you can't do that.

              The votes were counted. Roughly 70% of the voters voted for medical
              marijuana. The persistance of ignorance reflected by DemoPublicans, GOP
              specifically, on this issue should give us reflection on the importance of
              education on this issue.

              Commentary: Cannibis, marijuana, is one of earth's miracle plants. It will
              single-handedly (as a techno-fix) resolve many environmental problems, such
              as soil erosion, fiber for paper, and on and on. As a medical aid to end
              suffering, its benefits are well known by those who have used it. Meanwhile,
              thousands suffer because of the status-quo's ignorance.
              Regards,

              Ed Evans
              It's what we learn after we know it all that really counts.

                A Time 4 Hemp

                Independently published books seek to educate the public
                about the value of hemp

                with interviews that feature Willie Nelson and Dr. Tim Leary.

                Ever since the marijuana tax law of 1937, hemp has been illegal in
                America. Why would such a miracle plant be outlawed when it was being
                used at the time to make nearly everything from paper and cloth to
                food and fuels? The answer is simple: big business with a lust for
                big money. This is just one of many topics concerning hemp talked
                about in Casper Leitch's two-part book series called, A Time 4 Hemp.

                Moonlit Gatherings:

                An Arizona Lightline that was started a week after the passing
                of our beloved brother "Jerry Garcia" In hopes that you, "Not Fade
                Away."

                We all have our own story to tell about that dreadful summer morning
                when Jerry left us.

                That day changed my life, forever.

                I was awaken by a phone call early in the morning by my sister
                Helen's
                voice on my answering machine. She was speaking real slow with the
                same tone
                she had when she told me of the death of our father a couple years
                before.

                "Jerry's gone... he's gone!!!" I ran to the phone and just listened
                to her.
                Couldn't believe her, didn't want to believe her. I turned on the
                stereo to
                KZON, a local radio station here in the Tempe, Arizona area that most
                of us
                sisters and brothers tuned into. . . .

                Hemp Clothing Seized in France

                France, July 23, 2000, A shipment of 100% hemp clothing from Crucial
                USA,
                worth $5000, has been seized by French customs in May. The clothes
                were
                ordered by La Maison du Chanvre in Lyon, a nonprofit organization,
                which
                publishes the French hemp journal, Les chos du Chanvre.

                Although Crucial had already shipped clothes to France many times
                before, and
                without any trouble, this time a zealous custom officer at Roissy
                airport in
                Paris "felt obliged" to report to the district attorney that he saw
                the pot
                leaf on the clothes. The reason: article L630 of the French law.

                In France, freedom of expression is restricted by article L630 of the
                Public
                Health Code (part of the law dated Dec. 31, 1970, the cornerstone of
                the
                government's policy on drugs) which condemns the "presentation in a
                favorable
                manner of narcotics." This means that anything seen as instigating
                drug use
                is banned -- such as the cannabis hemp leaf. And according to the
                context,
                government officers decide whether the presentation is incitement or
                not.

                This is not the first time that hemp products face this silly law.
                Two years
                ago the British company The Body Shop had some trouble because of its
                new
                range of hemp cosmetics, featuring the hemp leaf on the packaging.
                But today,
                The Body Shop continues to display and sell these products.

                The law in France is a nonsense when one knows that France is the
                major hemp
                producer in Europe. And there are many hemp museums and companies
                using the
                cannabis hemp leaf as a symbol.

                LINN GIVES CONDE'S HEMP FEST THUMBS UP

                Marijuana activist Bill Conde announced Wednesday that he'd turned
                over a new
                leaf - and no, it wasn't that kind of leaf.

                Conde has been at odds with Linn County officials in recent years
                over
                drug-related activities during the concerts and festivals he stages
                at his
                redwood lumberyard north of Coburg. Various criminal charges against
                him,
                related to drug use on his property during gatherings in 1998 and
                1999,
                remain unresolved.

                But Conde struck an apparent truce Wednesday when Linn County
                commissioners
                unanimously approved a mass gathering permit for the World Hemp
                Festival
                2000, to be held on Conde's property July 14-16. Conde has not
                sought such a
                permit in the past, but this year he submitted an 82-page application
                that
                won praise from county officials.

                "We're not going to see any charges coming down on me for this
                event," Conde
                said. "I'm protecting myself in every way possible."

                The most notable element in his mass gathering proposal is a pledge
                to hire a
                private security firm to help address the issue of illegal drug use.
                County
                sheriff's officers have reported rampant drug use and open drug sales
                during
                previous events-charges Conde has denied.

                "I've never condoned anyone selling drugs on my property, but I will
                not deny
                it has happened," he said Wednesday. "But you go to any football
                game or any
                other activity where there are that many people and if that's what
                you're
                focusing on, you can find it."

                Know and Exercise Your Rights
                (Taken directly from Marijuana.com http://w
                ww.marijuana.com)

                The Fourth Amendment to the Bill of Rights of the United States
                Constitution states:


                The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses,
                papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures,
                shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable
                cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing
                the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

                The Fifth Amendment reads, in part, "No person shall be...compelled
                in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived
                of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law...." These
                amendments provide the foundation for the rights that protect all
                US Citizens from intrusive law enforcement practices.

                1. Don't Leave Contraband in Plain View
                Although law enforcement officers must obtain a warrant before they
                can conduct a privacy-invading search, any illicit material that can
                be plainly seen by any person from a nonintrusive vantage point is
                subject to confiscation. An arrest and a valid warrant to search the
                rest of the area is likely to ensue. A "roach" in the ashtray, a pipe
                or baggie on the coffee table, or a joint being smoked in public are
                common mistakes which all too-frequently lead to arrests.

                2. Don't Put Anything Incriminating Into the Trash
                Various courts have ruled that law enforcement officers are allowed
                to rummage through curbside trash bags without a warrant. A few seeds
                or stems can then be used as a basis for obtaining a warrant to
                search the individual's home. In fact, anything discarded into the
                public domain can be picked up by the police and used as evidence.

                3. Never Consent to a Search
                Many individuals arrested on marijuana charges could have avoided
                that arrest by exercising their Fourth Amendment rights. If a law
                enforcement officer asks permission to search, it is usually because:
                (1) there is not enough evidence to obtain a search warrant; or (2)
                the officer does not feel like going through the hassle of obtaining
                a warrant. Law enforcement officers are trained to intimidate people
                into consenting to searches. If an individual does consent, he waives
                his constitutional protection and the officers may search and seize
                items without further authorization. If officers find contraband,
                they will arrest the person.

                If an individual does not consent to a search, the officer must
                either release the person or detain the person and attempt to get a
                warrant. The fact that an individual refuses to consent does not give
                the officer grounds to obtain a warrant. The individual should
                politely say, "I do not consent to a search of my person, belongings,
                home, or vehicle. I retain my Fourth Amendment rights and all other
                rights under the United States Constitution. I will say nothing until
                my attorney is present."

                If the officer conducts a search anyway, without a warrant, any
                contraband will likely be declared invalid evidence by the judge, and
                any charges will probably be dropped. If the officer does attempt to
                obtain a warrant and is successful in doing so, the validity of the
                warrant can still be challenged in court. It is always better to
                refuse to consent to a search.

                4. Don't Answer Questions Without Your Attorney Present
                Whether arrested or not, individuals should always exercise the right
                to remain silent. Anything a person says to law enforcement officers,
                reporters, cell mates, or even their friends can be used as evidence
                against him or her. Individuals have the right to have an attorney
                present during questioning. The right to remain silent should always
                be exercised.

                5. Determining if You Can Leave
                A person may terminate an encounter with officers unless the person
                is being detained under police custody or has been arrested. If the
                person cannot tell whether he or she may leave, the person can ask
                officers, "Am I under arrest or otherwise detained?" If the answer
                is, "No," the person may leave.

                6. Do Not Be Hostile; Do Not Physically Resist
                There are times when individuals politely assert their rights and
                refuse to consent to a search but the officers nonetheless proceed to
                detain, search, or arrest them. In such cases, it is important not to
                physically resist. Rather, the individual might say, "Do what you
                feel you must; I will not physically resist. However, I do not
                consent to this." The individual can later challenge the search in
                court.

                7. Informing on Others
                The police and prosecutors often try to pressure individuals into
                providing information that would lead to the arrest and conviction of
                others. Threats and promises by police and prosecutors should be
                viewed with caution and skepticism. Decisions should only be made
                after consulting with an experienced criminal defense attorney and
                examining one's own conscience.

                Finally, consider downloading and carrying the ACLU's "Bustcard"
                http://www.aclu.org/pdf/bustcar
                d.pdf
                -- a quick reference guide to your rights and obligations when you
                are stopped by the police.

                  MAKE DECRIMINALIZATION OF MARIJUANA A REALITY

                  It was Saturday afternoon in downtown Salt Lake City, and the fresh
                  air was
                  a nice surprise in a place that is usually congested with exhaust
                  fumes.
                  The warm temperature invited us to walk through the streets.

                  Salt Lake turned into a real city for the day. Percussionists played
                  their
                  drums on the street corner, and people gathered together for once,
                  taking
                  time away from the busy day to relax.

                  Another band played a few blocks down, encouraging the audience to
                  participate in their ensemble.

                  Vendors lined the street along at least two blocks, tempting passers
                  by
                  with food, unique crafts and art.

                  What brought this all together was the First Annual Salt Lake City
                  Music
                  Festival. Although closed streets inconvenienced a few motorists, many
                  enjoyed a calming afternoon strolling the blocks.

                  Walking from vendor to vendor, we found one booth that stood out from
                  the
                  rest. A tapestry-sized tie dye cloth covered the back of their
                  establishment; on the cloth was a giant green marijuana leaf.

                  The front of the booth showcased shirts of a similar fashion, and
                  inside
                  lay an array of products manufactured from hemp. These vendors
                  weren't just
                  trying to capitalize on potheads who choose to advertise their
                  affection
                  for marijuana through a clever T-shirt - these guys had an agenda.

                  Dear Acting Administrator Marshall:


                  You have asked whether we can restrict the importation of products
                  that
                  contain what is commonly referred to as "hemp." These products have
                  been
                  routinely imported into the United States for use as birdseed and in

                  The DEA should get out of regulating hemp agriculture.

                  By Ralph Nader


                  Listen to Ralph Nader's March 3 speech in San Francisco.
                  INDUSTRIAL HEMP IS one of the longest and strongest natural fibers in
                  the plant kingdom. It is also one of the most versatile plants, with
                  approximately 25,000 uses – ranging from paper to textiles to
                  cosmetics.

                  Once deemed an indispensable commodity in the global market, it was
                  replaced by a multitude of synthetic fibers by the mid-1900s, when it
                  fell out of favor in the United States because of its relation to
                  marijuana. But, while industrial hemp does belong to the same species
                  as marijuana, it is a different variety with a very low THC content.
                  Smoking hemp will definitely not give you a high, though it will give
                  you a headache.

                    DEA is proposing to ban certain hemp products.

                    Have you heard that the DEA is proposing
                    to ban certain hemp products in the
                    United States?
                    The DEA and the drug czar claim that
                    hemp products are "confounding our
                    federal drug control testing program."
                    They are claiming that the use of hemp
                    products can cause people to test
                    positive for marijuana, even if they
                    have not used marijuana. This, the DEA
                    argues, undermines the government's
                    ability to hunt down marijuana users.
                    If you've already heard enough,
                    to make your voice heard.

                    Hemp Industries Assoc. Convention Report

                    Under the Maple Trees — Nestled in a Hockley Valley ecology
                    retreat near Toronto, the Hemp Industries Association held
                    their seventh annual convention among the maple and aspen
                    trees. This year's gathering saw 35-55 attendees which allowed
                    for intimate meetings and planning sessions.

                    After Friday night's dinner, members were formally welcomed
                    by RCMP Corp. Col. Jacques Dopray (Larry Duprey) appearing
                    in a double breasted suit, as opposed to the RCMP uniform
                    we saw last year, who informed us that as a result of his
                    promotion to a desk job, part of his new duties was to check
                    and observe the THC content in hemp foods being served.
                    He did his job admirably.
                    Go here for the rest of the story.

                    hemp oil. A total of 5 Industrial hemp research licenses and
                    2 commercial cultivation licenses were obtained from Health

                      Hemp Ale Is Smoking On The Rock

                      Author: Chris Flanagan, The (St. John's) Telegram

                      ST. JOHN'S - Two months after winning the battle to sell its
                      controversial hemp ale in Newfoundland, Storm Brewing Ltd.
                      has a much less inclement problem to weather: keeping up
                      with a flurry of demand.

                      Hemp Ale is selling at about double the rate of Storm Brewing's
                      other brands, Killick, Kyle and Baccalieu Light ales, new
                      company president and chief ale officer Michael McBride said
                      from the brewery in the St. John's suburb of Mount Pearl.
                      A third batch has been brewed and is about to hit store shelves,
                      many of which had been cleaned out by thirsty hemp-seekers.

                      Hemp Plant has to offer to the human race, as well as the economy
                      in Utah. We will host industrial and medicinal hemp petition booths
                      gathering signatures, a hemp vendors village, 2 stages with over

                      (AP) State and federal laws against marijuana didn't stop a number
                      of states from voting to permit its use under certain circumstances.
                      But Alaska turned down the chance to make the drug completely legal.

                      In Mendocino County, Calif., 115 miles north of San Francisco, voters
                      approved a measure that would allow residents to grow up to 25 pot
                      plants apiece. The measure faced no organized opposition. The
                      county would still prohibit the sale or transportation of the drug,
                      but
                      busting small-time growers and smokers would, officially, remain a
                      low priority for the sheriff.

                      This is an interesting historical article.
                      Thought you all might enjoy a little history

                      American farmers are promised a new cash crop with an annual
                      value of several hundred million dollars, all because a machine
                      has been invented that solves a problem more than 6,000 years old.
                      It is hemp, a crop that will not compete with other American
                      products.
                      Instead, it will displace imports of raw material and manufactured
                      products produced by underpaid coolie and peasant labor and it
                      will provide thousands of jobs for American workers throughout the
                      land.

                        enforced on the Hemp Plant, and the 25,000 plus uses that the Hemp
                        Plant has to offer to the human race, as well as the economy in Utah.
                        Most of all to bring legalization of the Hemp Industry back to Utah.
