home front

awww! the times has a picture of a farmer from osnabrock, standing in a field of canola. more importantly, the times has a story about efforts to grow hemp in the flickertail state. the economic arguments for it are great, there's essentially no real opposition in the state any more (despite the one uninformed nutbag conflating hemp with meth) -- and the folks standing in the way are the federal pot police. don't they have better things to be doing in the upper midwest?
