Kentucky Destroys Hemp Containing Too Much THC
There is a distinct possibility that residents in the northern part of the Bluegrass State have smelled something that resembles marijuana wafting through the air over the past few weeks. The Kentucky Department of Agriculture says it recently burned a significant amount of commercial hemp because it contained too much of the psychoactive compound THC.
Last Thursday, around 100 pounds of hemp was destroyed at a facility in Louisville because testing showed its THC levels were higher than what the federal government will allow without sending in a legion of DEA agents to tear down the whole scene.
Hemp is often considered marijuana’s more conservative cousin. While it does contain small amounts of THC, there is simply not enough of the compound present—no matter how much a person might smoke—to produce the stoned effects commonly associated with the use of marijuana.

Trump Cabinet Member Says Weed ‘Not a Factor’ in War on Drugs
Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly made headlines for his comments on Sunday’s Meet the Press, when he pronounced that marijuana is “not a factor” in the War on Drugs and that solving the nation’s drug problem does not involve “arresting a lot of users.”
Hmm… since when?
If memory serves, the U.S. government has been at war with weed since the 1930s.
Just two days ago, a local public radio station ran an interesting story on the topic:
“The origins of the seemingly eternal War on Drugs can be traced back to one man: Harry Anslinger, the first commissioner of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics. Beginning in 1930s, when America’s attitudes on opioids, cocaine and marijuana were less vitriolic, Anslinger argued for total drug prohibition and severe punishment for offenders.”
