Just back from a trip to Hungary, during which I was (in part) trying
to track down information on the relationship between fertility regimes
and fibre quality, so I cant resist comment.
These DEA folks just don't know shiitake from Shinola when it comes to
hemp. If they understood the plant at all they would be falling all
overthemselves to get American farmers to grow it --- cannabis
produces unbelievable quantities of highly wind-borne pollen. If
you're producing sinsemilla, that is *very* bad news. If you're a doper
growing some of the high-octane hybrids developed after the
interdiction policies of the early '80s, it is also very bad news.
Abundant pollen from very low THC plants could probably negate much of
the last 20 years of breeding for THC in about three or four years. If
you want to hurt the domestic dope industry, one of the best ways to do
it would be large plantations of hemp upwind from favored dope
production areas. Growing hemp in the Pacific could be a bit tricky,
but you get the idea ..... (-:
Next thing you know, they'll be coming after the beautiful hemp
tablecloth I brought home with me.
