I leave this thread for a couple of hours and TONS of disinformation have overflowed into it! Cheeze-whiz guys! Learn to use Google.
If you live in the State of Oregon or the State of North Dakota, you do *NOT*
need a DEA Permit to grow Hemp!
If you live in the States of Hawaii, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Montana, Vermont and West Virginia you cannot grow Hemp, but you can make Hemp
Products from imported Hemp either from outside of the country or from Oregon and North Dakota.
There is currently a bill before Congress called the Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2009 or
introduced by Ron Paul that seeks to remove the DEA Restrictions on the
growing of Industrial Hemp or any other agricultural product containing less than 0.3% THC. It is currently referred to the House Subcommittee on
Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security. It is awaiting for final review on January 1st, 2010 when the federal delegation from Oregon shows up with
in hand to demand federal relief claiming State Sovereignty on the issue. The House
Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism, and Homeland Security will then either recommend the passing of H.R. 1866 or face being challenged in Court by the
federal delegation from Oregon.
We've done it before with Medical Marijuana and Assisted Suicide. Oregon doesn't let some Federal Subcommittee tell us what we can't do when we've
gone through the trouble to democratically pass laws that conflict with Federal laws.
