Events and petitions and sales at Ruth's Foods

Just in from Ruth's Foods, actions, news and sales!

I was happy to see this company doing so much for hemp - check out all the events here - especially her petitions against GMO - about which we dedicated an entire chapter in the book - which did not endear us to at least one major bookshop which then refused to carry Hemp for Victory ...
But that's how it works. And I was not sad to hear that the company, Borders, went out of business.
Hemp for Victory will be available on line next year, as the publishers in London are working on that right now with Mina Hegaard of Minawear - whose company is working on their own petition,this one to make hemp legal again in the US - we are talking to Dr Ron Paul and former Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney about that - if you are interested in helping in any way, or could plan an event related to that - please contace us at -
or go to the site! Let's make it a New Year's Resolution
to be active on this.
So here's to 2013 and prosperity for all in the Hemp World, scroll below to see what Ruth's Foods has been doing:

OK: Why Hemp Oil?

It is a great vegan source of Essential Fatty Acids (EFA's): Omega 3, 6 & 9 & GLA. These keep your skin and hair beautiful, help to lower blood pressure, and keeps your joints flexible. EFAs are the main component of your brain, so they help with mental focus and development: critical for people of all ages.
And with the weather getting colder, keep warm by taking about a tablespoon of hemp oil per day, in salad dressing, over rice or pasta or on its own.
Our hemp is certified organic, and expeller pressed at low temperatures to maintain maximum integrity and taste. Stay moisturized from the inside out with this delicious oil!
Don't heat this oil up too much - it will destroy the health benefits. As well as salad dressings, you can use it as a finishing oil, pour into sauces and soups at serving time, and it makes a wicked pesto, together with our SoftHemp, or use it to make raw vegan hemp mayo!
Today only we're offering a great value on our certified organic oil: enter the code 121212 for 30% off your choice of: single bottles, half or full cases - click here to buy now.

These petitions are great, I have heard a lot about the one to the White House that Minawear is doing,
makes one wonder why this still has to be done when the Dems have been in power so long - why are we still having to tell them about hemp?
Keep us posted on that.

Yeah, funny how the Dems are just sitting by. If it weren't for Ron Paul, an Independent, we would not even have the Hemp Bill, which could be passed if the Dems were all as pro-America as they pretend.
2013 is time to take all these petitions to the White House and each of us to lobby our reps - why do they brush us off as garbage while they can talk to high paid lobbyists? Because we are not persistent enough. Get persistent. Get on these petitions and then call, write and email these people till hemp cultivation is legal and GMOs are not.

That petition to POTUS sounds great, keep us posted.
