Image left is of North Dakota legislature and farmer David Monson, who has lobbied for the rights of his constituents to grow hemp. He is intending to grow a 10 acre plot, although one last hurdle is approval by the DEA, which may decide not to allow it. To hell with America is the attitude in many of the lawmakers who have infiltrated the system in the land of the free, so we wait to see if this is going to actually bear fruit or not. In the meantine, Monson is paying hefty filing fees and getting fingerprinted to exercise his right to the crop that Washington and Jefferson used to harvest regularly.

If he gets his rights, then we might see hemp this year in Cavalier County, North Dakota, and with this in place, we might expect to see this set a precedent. For anyone interested in growing hemp in North Dakota, contact the North Dakota Department of Agriculture (NDDA) at: 600 E. Boulevard Ave., Dept. 602, Bismarck, ND, 58505-0020; phone: (701) 328-2231; e-mail:
