Thank you for getting back to me. I will do my best to keep this short, but there is a lot to look at here.
I am asking for an investigation on Special Agent/Sgt Scott E. Haley for perjury & civil rights violations on the affidavit used to raid my family's home on March...
The west coast is the green coast.
One wonders how it's going to go... the anti-mj people/groups are no doubt going to ramp up things on their end. Will there be a (un)Civil Drug War?
A-men brother. And the knowledge that it costs $300 on the street for what cost you $25 to produce.12 NovDoobie Brother
Could not agree more with you on this one! I'm enjoying a jar I sealed up back in March....man, when she is cracked, it smells like sweet flowers :)

Hydrocarbons vs Carbohydrates:
The Future of Plastics hempfarm
Vegetable matter and minerals have competed with each other to become the dominant industrial input for almost 200 years. For the first 150 years, significant advances occurred in the use of both types of material. Then, for a quarter of a century after World War II, hydrocarbons took over almost completely but since the 1980s, carbohydrate-derived industrial products have been sweeping back as a result of technological and political developments.

The basic building block of plastics is cellulose taken from petroleum, but toxic petrochemical compositions are not the only way to derive plastics. Plastics can be derived from plant cellulose, and since hemp is the greatest cellulose producer on Earth (hemp hurds can be 85% cellulose), it only makes sense to make non-toxic, biodegradable plastic from hemp and other organics,

What Is Hemp Plastic? hempplastic
An affordable bio based natural fibre composite to replace oil based raw materials.
Designed in Europe over 15 years and now produced in China, Hemp Plastics compete with engineering compounds in properties such as stiffness and high heat tolerance (HDT). Both biodegradable and recyclable blends address global policies for CO2 reduction and oil dependence. Hemp plastics are not made from hemp oil or hemp seeds, but from the stalk.

Henry Ford was fond of saying, "Why use up the forests which were centuries in the making and the mines which required ages to lay down if we can get the equivalent of forests and mineral products from the annual growth of the fields?"
George Washington Carver had a response: "I believe that the great Creator has put ores and oil on this earth to give us a breathing spell. As we exhaust our finite resources, we must be prepared to fall back on our farms, which is Gods true storehouse and can never be exhausted. We can learn to synthesize material for every human need from things that grow."
That "breathing spell" ended 60 years ago when Henry Ford built his car. Since then, we have cut down half of the worlds forests, a primary source of clean air. Only 3 percent of the U.S. original forests still remain. Much of Australia's old-growth forests are being cut down for wood chips. If we dont start using hemp to help build our societies, what will we use?

Farmers here see a good thing and have made changes to their production schedules to reflect it . Driving around the countryside this summer it was easy
To find fields of it growing. You can make more off of hemp than canola and it is way easier to grow . After this years big wind storms in sept destroyed the canola crops here , the hemp fields looked like they were unharmed. The farmers also can wait and combine it late in the season when the ground is frozen .
I also noticed that it was not affected by the heavy rains as bad as other crops
