I find the hemp situation interesting and have a suggestion for a legal remedy. As everyone knows, poppies are illegal to grow or possess under ther same laws as hemp but ther law is not enforced with regard to poppies. You can buy poppy seeds from many seed houses. In fact, there are (right now) poppies growing in Golden Gate Park. Has anyone considered suing the DEA alleging violation of the equal protection provision of the Constitution? If they are so lax in enforcing the law against poppies, the percurser to herion, haw can they legally be so gung-ho about hemp?
