Kinky Friedman Texas hemp boys (and girls)

View Kinky Freidman.jpg in slide show

Above is a picture of Kinky Friedman, with Mina Hegaard - both Texas hemp advocates, both are well known and need little introduction in the hemp world.
Kinky is running for Texas Agricultural Commissioner, while Mina runs Minawear Hemp Clothing
based in Victoria, but soon to move to Austin, Texas.

The election will be in November. If Kinky gets in,  chads will be made of hemp paper and farmers will be making money in America and using less water and little or no pesticides.

Lots of news in the US about hemp lately, so much so that the federal government has made it legal for people to grow it if is legal at the state level - so once Texas gets a sensible law passed it will be able to stop the dependency on water hungry cotton and corn and grow hemp.  Hopefully there can be emergency expedition of such a law so that it can be passed as soon as the Texas legislature sits.

For this to be, there needs to be public support of such a move - the federal government passed the hemp legislation only after much outcry - some of it coming from Texas in the form of the Minawear petition, still up at www.minawear.com/about-us/

There will be a new petition soon to make hemp legal at the state level and also to expedite this legislation for 2014.
