Hemp Should Be Legal - End The War On Drugs

Here's an email from Richard M. Davis, founder and curator of the USA Hemp Museum, a private museum with a virtual wing located at http://www.hempmuseum.org/, to the US Attorney General, Eric Holder asking for clarification on President Obama's hemp policy.

"Dear DOJ,

Is hemp legal?

If not what is the signal that it is ok to plant hemp?

A hemp bill has passed the Legislature in CA. North Dakota wants to know. When can we plant?

Please answer this letter with a statement of permission to plant.

Please relay this request to President Obama.

Thank you.

Please contact President Obama and the Department of Justice to tell them to end the war on drugs, which has erupted into the an estimated 6,290 drug-related murders in Mexico last year, by ending the war on drugs.

As reported by MSNBC

"Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, made the trip to confer with Mexican leaders about the Merida Initiative, a three-year plan signed into law last June to flood the U.S.-Mexican border region with $1.4 billion in U.S. assistance for law-enforcement training and equipment, as well as technical advice and training to bolster Mexico’s judicial system.

The assistance is intended to help Mexican President Felipe Calderón Hinojosa step up his war against drug cartels. The drug lords and their soldiers are blamed for having killed more than 6,300 people since January 2008, including more than 1,000 in the first two months of this year alone.

That’s about 100 people every week for the last 14 months. The cartels usually do not target civilians, but dozens, perhaps hundreds, have died in the crossfire.

“It’s a real war,” says Jorge Ramos, mayor of Tijuana, Mexico, across the border with San Diego. “We’re not faking.”


END THE WAR ON DRUGS

Yea man. There needs to be a frank discussion about making hemp legal. The only thing is people are lazy. I feel like I got more ethic than few people combined. It doesn't help that people are at their job all day and just want to go home and relax. People don't have enough hours in the day to "get involved."
