Interesting article to read in that Australia is just now grappling with the notion of allowing hemp foods (something that has been allowed in the United States in terms of selling and consumption, despite DEA efforts).
Reading the concerns and seeing how silly they are brings home the similar silliness of issues here and the over-reaction by authorities to them.
I love this line:
The federal Health Department is already fighting the plan, on the grounds it could “promote a public perception that cannabis is an acceptable and safe product to consume”.
Yes, it could promote that, because it’s absolutely true! And extremely nutritious and tasty as well.
I wonder if the federal Health Department fought the plan to legalize broccoli on the grounds it could promote a public perception that broccoli is an acceptable and safe product to consume.
