The Amazing Benefits of Hemp Seeds — Too Bad the DEA Is Curtailing the Industry | Alternet.

 

Unfortunately…The U.S Drug Enforcement Administration continues to cite drug-test-interference problems from the mid-1990s as grounds to curtail the legitimate hemp industry. The DEA has not attacked poppy-seed bagel makers for promoting opium use, despite the fact that poppy seeds come from the same plant species as does opium, and contain trace opiates which could interfere with narcotics drug testing. The U.S. government has also not harassed fruit juice companies regarding trace alcohol in juice present through natural fermentation.

About Auntie BS

I am a proponent of ending prohibition and control of inanimate objects. History has shown that this is ineffective and a HUGE waste of resources. Judge people on what they DO, not what they own, ingest, talk about, or think. I abhor dishonesty and corruption and this will dominate my blogs.
