Standing Silent Nation

On PBS tomorrow (Tuesday, July 3) is the premiere of Standing Silent Nation by Suree Towfighnia and Courtney Hermann

In April 2000, Alex White Plume and his Lakota family planted industrial hemp on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota after other crops had failed. But when federal agents raided the White Plumes’ fields, the Lakota Nation was swept into a Byzantine struggle over tribal sovereignty, economic rights and common sense.

This looks like it could be a very good piece. There are some extra clips at the website, including “Hemp for Victory” which is a history of hemp production in America, and an amazing interview with former CIA director James Woolsey, who not only says that industrial hemp should be legalized, but blatantly points out how stupid the government’s policy is (particularly regarding the nonsense about hiding pot in industrial hemp fields).
