U.S. House To Vote On Hemp Research Amendment


industrial hemp research us houseHemp is one of the most versatile plants on the planet. Hemp’s benefits and uses is something that has gone virtually untapped for so long in America, that it has always been one of my dreams to see hemp fully legalized and see how opponents react when they find out they have been wrong for so long. Below is an e-mail that I received from Dan Riffle, who is an amazing activist:

Partisan bickering kept the U.S. Senate from voting on an amendment to its version of the farm bill that would have made industrial hemp legal. While that was unfortunate, it appears as if supporters of sensible hemp policies will now have a real shot at reform in the House of Representatives.

Last night, the House Rules Committee approved an amendment that would allow colleges and universities to grow and cultivate industrial hemp for academic and agricultural research purposes in states where hemp is already legal under state law.

Call your representative in Congress now to ask for a “yes” vote on this amendment!

Because the DEA senselessly considers hemp to be on par with marijuana, even though it has virtually no THC, we import millions of dollars in hemp products from China and Canada instead of creating those jobs and products here at home. This amendment would be significant progress toward more rational hemp policies.

The amendment was just approved last night, so we don’t yet know when it will be voted on by the full House, but it could be as early as today. There’s no time for emails; please call your representative today, and tell him or her to support this modest, sensible step forward on hemp. When you’re done, please ask your friends to do the same.

  1. This should be elevated to a Human Rights issue.

    Eat Hemp Seed or Hemp Oil in your diet for 120 plus days. I am not speaking of as a salad topping. I am talking about a substantial portion of your caloric intake from Hemp.

    You must first clean your system of “…toothpaste-like waste…”* which is impacted on the walls of your intestines. Once you do, your body will THEN evidence ailments. What happens is the anti-inflammatory effects reduce inflammation which then reveals the ailments. At this point the nutritional values of Hemp take over by helping to fuel the body’s return to holistic strength. Cannabis is also much more effective at this point as the body’s Endogenous Cannabinoid Receptor System is healthy and stimulated from the nutritional fuel. The 20-plus Amino Acids, Essential Fatty Acids, Omega Oils 3-6-9 and Globular, Edestine & Albumen proteins ALL fuel the mind and are ESSENTIAL TO CRITICAL THOUGHT.

    Hence, Consciously Aware vs. Unconsciously Unaware.
