Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, October 14, 2019

Local farmers recently raised what seemed like a simple question: Anyone growing hemp legally in Kern County ought to be able to sell it on the side of the road just like growers of other crops, right?

"If they are selling it to smoke, then it is marijuana, not hemp," Kern County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Angela Monroe said by email, citing direction from the department's narcotics sergeant. "He also says if they are selling buds, again, that's not industrial help. That's marijuana."

The whole thing has put the county ag commissioner in a difficult position.

Glenn Fankhauser said at least two local growers have approached him about their proposal to set up roadside hemp stands for the purpose of selling some of their crop to smokers.

It was midnight on the sea, the band was playing 'Nearer My God To Thee', and Jack Johnson had 497 1/2 feet of hemp rope.

I don't even have to click on the link. I know the song. Dr. Demento used to play it a lot.

I can see a lot of sales avenues for them. The rope thing of course, and then there's seasonal door wreathes, with buds for 'decoration.'
Bags of hemp mulch, fire starters, hemp cloth clothing and much more.
Farmers are resourceful, I'm sure they've thought this out.

The nation needs to grow the hell up and let people smoke marijuana if they want to.
