U.S. court rejects DEA ban on hemp foods


- - - - - - - - - - - -
By Jim Kravets



June 30, 2003  |  SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- A federal appeals court Monday overturned a Drug Enforcement Administration ban on the sale of food containing the marijuana relative hemp, saying the agency failed to give adequate public notice.

The 2-1 ruling by a panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals did not address the merits of the ban itself, but merely determined whether the government followed proper procedure when it announced the rule in October 2001.

Separately, the hemp industry is challenging the ban itself, and the rule is on the hold in the meantime.

Hemp is an industrial plant related to marijuana. Fiber from hemp plants long has been used to make paper, clothing, rope and other products. Its oil is found in lotions, soap and cosmetics and in a host of foods, including energy bars, waffles, milk-free cheese, veggie burgers and bread.

In 2001, the DEA declared that foods containing even trace amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC -- the psychoactive chemical found in marijuana and sometimes in hemp -- are banned under the Controlled Substances Act.

DEA attorney Daniel Dormont told the appeals court that the agency banned food made with hemp because there is no way of knowing whether some of the products may get people high.

Hemp food sellers insist their products do not contain enough THC to get anyone high.

They failed to mention that hemp food tastes rather nasty :wink:

Hemp food was never illegal. The dea has been trying for over two years to make it illegal, but have not yet been successfull.

It is unlikely that they ever will be.

I've never understood why they waste their time and our money on trying to ban hemp products.

Cuz they're addicted to criminalizing things. They just cant get enough of it.

They know no one is getting high of hemp but the more things they make illegal the more powerful they feel. One percent or less THC.

It's obvious. They are just trying to shut people up. The people who are buying and selling hemp are promoting the movement to change the laws. This is an attempt to bypass the First Ammendment by attacking their "enemy" financially with bullshit laws.

They do the same thing with paraphernelia laws.
