VICTORY: Reversal of Hemp Ban in Natural & Organic Foods

VICTORY: REVERSAL OF HEMP BAN IN NATURAL & ORGANIC FOODS!
Three years ago the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) announced a new law banning hemp ingredients in natural and organic food products. After a long and costly legal battle, waged by the Hemp Industries Association, and bolstered by public interest plaintiffs including the Organic Consumers Association, the U.S. federal government finally backed down this week, making hemp foods, once again, legal. Hemp seed is most commonly used as a nutritional supplement in a variety of foods. It offers an ideal balance of two essential fatty acids (omega-3/omega-6). Despite Bush Administration propaganda, hemp foods contain insignificant levels of THC (tetrahyrdocannabinol), the chemical in marijuana that results in psychotropic effects. In that sense, eating hemp foods does not interfere with workplace drug tests, and, in fact, the THC levels in hemp foods are below that of opiates found in poppy seeds in muffins and breads. The hemp food industry is expecting a major boom in sales as a result of the removal of the DEA's ban. It is still illegal for U.S. farmers to grow industrial hemp, even as Chinese, Canadian, and European farmers supply a rapidly growing international market for hemp food ingredients, animal feed, clothing, paper, nutritional supplements, and bio-diesel fuel.
