From Calgary - Hemp is an industrial resource! Check out this electric car built from hemp fiber
Although hemp was first used by Henry Ford in 1941 and can still be found in many cars today, the Kestrel is the first modern car to be built primarily out of hemp.
It may sound like the beginnings of a riddle, but what do sustainable paper, fashionable clothes, nutritious food, and the world’s most eco-friendly car all have in common? Hemp! Yes, it’s the amazing truth. Yet, despite the thousands of uses for hemp, the United States still classifies the completely harmless plant as a Schedule 1 Drug within the USA’s Controlled Substances Act of 1970. Canada, on the other hand, legalized industrial Hemp in 1998, giving Calgary-based Motive Industries INC. the opportunity to make the super sleek car, and totally hemp-based, Kestrel. Way to be behind the times, USA!

CBS TV Videos - Charlo Greene of CBS affiliate KTVA presented her final report on a medical marijuana business, the Alaska Cannabis Club. It ended with a surprise.
Read article: Alaska news reporter Charlo Greene quits live on air to campaign for marijuana
Following her live-resignation, Greene set up an IndieGogo page to ask for donations to help with their campaign for marijuana reform in Alaska.
She wrote in a statement on the funding page: "I'm Charlo Greene, the president and CEO of the Alaska Cannabis Club - Alaska's only legal medical marijuana resource. I just quit my news reporting job on live TV to announce that I am redirecting all of my energy toward helping to end a failed drug policy that has ruined the lives of far too many Americans."
Greene is hoping residents in Alaska will vote 'yes' on the upcoming Ballot Measure 2, the initiative to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol in Alaska, on 4 November.
She added: "As a member of the media, I've seen the dirty campaign tricks and lies that prohibitionists have been using over the past several months to sway Alaskan voters firsthand. Here's the sad thing: it's working. Polling shows the majority of Alaskans, who were in favour of the initiative at the start of the year, are now against it.
"Few people fighting for marijuana legalisation in Alaska are as media savvy, well-educated on the marijuana industry, passionate, professional and completely dedicated to passing this initiative as me, the only person in Alaska that has had the balls to face the injustice of Alaska's medical marijuana catch-22 and do something about it. My Alaska Cannabis Club members are right here with me, ready to fight this long overdue fight."
KVTA apologised and confirmed Greene no longer works at the channel.
News director Bert Rudman said: "We sincerely apologise for the inappropriate language used by a KTVA reporter during her live presentation on the air tonight. The employee has been terminated."

LAFAYETTE COUNTY, Mo. — Authorities seized 400 lbs of chocolate bars containing edible marijuana that were hidden inside boxes in a car they stopped Tuesday, Feb. 24, at mile marker 40 on eastbound I-70. The Missouri state trooper stopped the 2015 Infiniti QX60 for a traffic violation, and during the traffic stop, authorities say the driver had inconsistent answers and his behavior seemed deceptive.
The trooper asked for consent to search the vehicle because the suspect’s story didn’t add up and when it was granted, the trooper located the marijuana chocolate inside boxes in the cargo area of the vehicle.
Jeffrey J. Woo, 42, from Ladera Ranch, California, was arrested for possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance and transported to the Lafayette County Jail. The arrest happened at about 3:35 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.
Police said the chocolate bars were transferred to highway patrol headquarters in Lee’s Summit, where they are locked up in an evidence room.
“These edibles that we are seeing look like regular chocolate bars, look like regular candy bars, look like regular food, and we’re worried,: Sgt. Collin Stosberg said. “Our main concern is obviously getting in the hands of our children, and these THC levels in these edibles are at an all time high.”
The chocolate bars resembled regular chocolate bars with flavors such as bacon, peanut butter and jelly swirl.

Product DescriptionThe first in-depth look at the burgeoning legal cannabis industry and how the “new green economy” is shaping our country
The nation’s economy is in trouble, but there’s one cash crop that has the potential to turn it around: cannabis (also known as marijuana and hemp). According to Time, the legal medicinal cannabis economy already generates $200 million annually in taxable proceeds from a mere two hundred thousand registered medical users in just fourteen states.
But, thanks to Nixon and the War on Drugs, cannabis is still synonymous with heroin on the federal level even though it has won mainstream acceptance nationwide.
ABC News reports that underground cannabis’s $35.8 billion annual revenues already exceed the combined value of corn ($23.3 billion) and wheat ($7.5 billion). Considering the economic impact of Prohibition—and its repeal—Too High to Fail isn’t a commune-dweller’s utopian rant, it’s an objectively (if humorously) reported account of how one plant can drastically change the shape of our country, culturally, politically, and economically.
Too High to Fail covers everything from a brief history of hemp to an insider’s perspective on a growing season in Mendocino County, where cannabis drives 80 percent of the economy (to the tune of $6 billion annually). Investigative journalist Doug Fine follows one plant from seed to patient in the first American county to fully legalize and regulate cannabis farming. He profiles an issue of critical importance to lawmakers, media pundits, and ordinary Americans—whether or not they inhale. It’s a wild ride that includes swooping helicopters, college tuitions paid with cash, cannabis-friendly sheriffs, and never-before-gained access to the world of the emerging legitimate, taxpaying “ganjaprenneur.”
Police allegedly eating pot after raid

A new video is out showing police officers raiding a medical marijuana dispensary. On Friday, Huffington Post shared this video that was taken from a surveillance camera. An internal investigation is now ongoing after this video came out that shows a lot of things going on that should not have been allowed.
The cops are talking and teasing about kicking a disabled woman in her stump. Then it goes on to allegedly show them eating some of the stuff in the dispensary. They all go in busting down the door and then ordering everyone to the ground. Marijuana activist Marla James, an amputee who uses a wheelchair was there for it all.
In the video, it shows an officer saying she should have kicked her in her stump. James spoke out about the video saying "You know what, I was really nice to that woman. I even complimented her on her hair. I treated that woman with respect and I have no idea why she wanted to kick my stump." She shared that the video made her almost cry.
One of the officers is spotted eating something that appears to be an edible he picked up there, but instead it could just be protein bar or something that he carried in with him, but it doesn't look that way.
Cmdr. Chris Revere told KABC, "We expect our officers to hold themselves to a certain standard and represent the department and the profession well. If that wasn't done in this case, it's certainly something that, as part of the administrative investigation, the chief will make the appropriate disciplinary recommendation if it's warranted."

"An Oregon Democrat literally threw up his hands in frustration Tuesday after failing to get a direct answer to his question about marijuana's dangers from the deputy director of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy. Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) asked Michael Botticelli, the drug czar's chief deputy, to identify the number of marijuana overdoses reported in the previous five years. "To my knowledge, I don't know if there have been instances of specific overdose-related deaths," Botticelli said...".* Ben Mankiewicz (co-host of What The Flick?! and TYT Sports) and comedian Jimmy Dore break it down on The Young Turks.Prized Fresh Seeds From World Renowned Famous Top Breeders
