America Could Legalize Hemp This Year, Action Needed
Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, May, 24th 2013 by THCFinder
Hemp legalization in America has rapidly become a legitimate political possibility,this year.
The stars are lining up.
House Majority Leader John Boehner – the most powerful Republican in the U.S. in terms of legislation - has indicated that he’ll work towards hemp legalization, something that Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell has already been working towards. McConnell, to the surprise of many, is the prime sponsor of legislation filed in the Senate to end hemp prohibition.
In addition, Patrick Leahy, Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, a committee hemp legalization would be required to go through, has signaled that he’ll support a proposal to legalize hemp. This is huge.
A national farm bill is going through the legislature which overhauls (mostly technical stuff) the nation’s farm industry. An amendment to end hemp prohibition – introduced by Democratic Senator Ron Wyden and cosponsored by McConnell and others - has been introduced into the bill. This may very well be the path of legal hemp, and could make it a reality by the end of the year, maybe by the end of the summer.

SEATTLE, Wash. (KTLA) — A butcher at Seattle’s famed Pike Place Market has given a whole new meaning to ‘pot-bellied’ pigs.
After the state legalized marijuana use in earlier this year, William Von Schneidau started feeding his hogs unused weed by-products.
According to Schneidau, the pigs who were fed marijuana stems, leaves and roots were 20 to 30 pounds heavier than his other pigs.
And his ‘smoked’ bacon has been very popular.
In fact, his sales were so high, he ran out of meat.

Seattle council panel approves marijuana growing zones
Category: News | Posted on Thu, May, 23rd 2013 by THCFinder
A Seattle City Council committee has approved zoning for large indoor marijuana farms in some industrial areas of the city.
The Seattle Times reports the zoning approved Wednesday would allow growing operations the size of a football field to encourage economies of scale.
The city rules also would permit growing as many as 45 pot plants in homes so residents could grow their own, although that would conflict with state rules.
Council member Nick Licata said the city is in a "bit of the Twilight Zone" because of uncertain regulations. The state is still putting a recreational marijuana system in place; medical marijuana is largely unregulated and the federal government considers all marijuana illegal.
The full council is expected to take up the zoning issue June 3.
