Schwarzenegger Terminates Hemp Farming Bill, Again [CA]

Schwarzenegger Terminates Hemp Farming Bill, Again
October 11, 2007 - NBC

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has vetoed a hemp farming bill for the second time.

The Republican governor announced on Thursday that he had turned down a measure by Assemblyman Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, that would have authorized a five-year program under which farmers in four counties -- Imperial, Kings, Mendocino and Yolo -- could grow hemp in plots of up to five acres.

Hemp is a distant cousin of marijuana but contains only traces of THC, the drug that gives marijuana its intoxicating effect.

It's legal to grow hemp in more than 30 countries, and the plant can be imported into the United States and used in a wide variety of products, including food and clothing.

But it can't be grown legally in the U.S. without a nearly impossible-to-obtain permit from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.

Leno attempted to avoid federal restrictions by requiring farmers to sell the hemp only to California processors. That way, they could avoid interstate commerce that could bring federal intervention.

Leno came back with a narrower measure after Schwarzenegger vetoed a bill last year that would have allowed any California farmer to grow hemp. But the governor still cited the federal restrictions in his veto message.

"Under federal law, all cannabis plants, regardless of variety or THC content, are simply considered to be 'marijuana,' which is a federally regulated controlled substance," he said, adding that failure to get a permit to grow it could lead to criminal charges.

Well, from what we've seen in the past, Schwarzenegger doesn't seem to care about the police

I can't believe what is going on in this country.

I heard somewhere,
you can get the same amount of paper out of 1 acre of hemp, as you can out of 4 acres of normal trees

I can see why it is such a terrible crop...
He probably doesn't even realize there is almost no THC in hemp.

I agree 100% it almost parallels the movies story. Monsanto Terminator Gene anyone?

The Illuminati are not stupid. Hemp will pollinate the Marijuana Crop. We all know Arnold Smokes, it is safe to say he is a puppet/actor for the Illuminati. He like all others will not let their's, nor his supply go to seed. Hashish is a big business for these people. It is a divine right of the assassins.

Rest In Peace

up to 5 acres? hey lets give Arnold some credit here, 5 acres here and there is not going to make much difference, this is just a badly written bill that he probably shot down for that reason, not because of anything else. We already know Arnold smoked weed at some point and thinks its just a plant. He would probably approve this if it where worth a damn, but hes got a budget crisis over there, and this bill would take more resources than it would provide.

Whatever happened to this "Marijuana is not a drug, it is a plant" bullshit?

unfortunately growers of hemp are considered marijuana growers because the DEA wont distinguish between Marijuana and Hemp and 98 percent of "Marijuana" eradicated, at a cost of about 5 billion dollars is actually just feral hemp leftover from the days when we could farm it. its just about the most illogical thing you can think of, these people who are supposed to know about drugs are so hung up on prohibition that hemp means marijuana. actually marijuana is outlawed because it is hemp, not because of its effects. read the history on that (Jack Herer's Emperor Wears No Clothes, google it or go to jackherer.com)

That being said I think the defeat of the bill is more economic than whether Ahnold cares one way or the other about it. Hemp farmers could be easily targetted by the Fascist DEA.
