One thing about the 2012 presidential election is sure: If you support the legalization of industrial hemp, you aren’t going to be represented either by Barack Obama or by whichever Republican candidate enters the general election. So, where can you turn?
Look to the Justice Party candidacy of Rocky Anderson. Rocky Anderson, unlike President Obama, Mitt Romney or Rick Santorum, is not afraid to speak plainly on the issue of hemp.
Rocky Anderson says, “It is time to allow farmers to grow industrial hemp in the United States. There is a huge market for textiles, paper, high protein food, clean burning diesel fuel and biodegradable plastics that industrial hemp farmers could produce using less water than cotton, needing no pesticides or herbicides for growing this ‘green’ alternative product… The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) continues to intentionally confound industrial hemp and marijuana. This has resulted in an absurd policy: hemp seed, oil and fiber are all currently legal for trade in the U.S., and domestic industry imports industrial hemp for diverse uses. Yet, at the same time, U.S. farmers are prevented from producing industrial hemp for the domestic market. It is time to remove unnecessary barriers to the domestic production of legal industrial hemp.”
You want industrial help to be grown in the United States? Well then, your choice is clear. To Legalize Hemp, Vote Rocky Anderson President in 2012.
