DEA outlaws hemp food products. The Washington Post reports that the DEA has sunk another notch in its war on drugs. The order? No hemp in food. Despite having only trace amounts of THC (the active ingredient in marijuana), the DEA has ordered all hemp food products off the shelf. Quote: “This is from the same administration that says it’s okay to have more arsenic in water than it is to have hemp in cereal.” The DEA defended the decision by stating that they are required by law to ban anything containing THC (no matter the amount). Bagels to be banned next? [kuro5hin.org]
Did we really expect anything else from our ongoing war on drugs? I mean, come on!
