Will Espero of Hawaii authors bill on hemp

More and more states are considering making hemp legal, this on Hawaii by Anita Hofschneider of the Associated Press:

The approvals Monday afternoon come after a House committee passed a measure last week to establish a pilot program using industrial hemp to get rid of toxins in soil.

Industries are anethema to most US Congressmen and Senators! They are quietly destroying the nation. They gotta be stopped - sign the petition for hemp at www.minawear.com/about-us/ and put the politicians in their place.
