U.S. Rep. Ron Paul: legalize hemp, man

A hemp leaf
U.S. Rep. Ron Paul, the gynecologist-turned-congressman from Brazosport, has managed to escape the dull and rusty editorial knife of his local newspaper, The Facts, despite co-sponsoring legislation to set a date for the withdrawl of American troops from Iraq.

The local editorial sages have not uttered a peep on Paul's controversial Iraqi move.

Now comes Paul, a Republican (wink-wink-nudge-nudge), with some more editorial fodder ripe for the pickin' -- his Industrial Hemp Farming Act.

Legalize it, says Paul. It's not for smokin', it's for making stuff, like rope and cosmetics and paper and cool sandals and the door frames of cars (really! door frames, says the Gentleman from Brazosport).

The USA is the only industrial nation that refuses to legalize industrial hemp. Six states (not Texas) allow its growth, but Big Bro Fed. Govt. stands in the way. What say you, Facts? Yea or nay? Speak!

As Peter Tosh once said "legalize it".
