[FONT=Verdana,Geneva,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif] In our last issue of The Hemp News Update we were left hanging as to when the Vermont hemp farming bill would be sent to Governor Douglas for his signature or veto. Since then we have had enough political intrigue to satisfy even the most jaded observer. If you subscribe to our Vote Hemp Report email newsletter you may have received part of the news as well as our press release yesterday. [/FONT]

Governor Douglas received the bill and forwarded it on to the Secretary of State intending it to become law without his signature. But, this fomented a constitutional controversy as the Secretary of State's office refused to accept the bill and asked for opinion from Attorney General if the bill should become law or not. The Attorney General's office sent a Formal Opinion to the Secretary of State in support of Governor's action. So, the Secretary of State accepted Attorney General's opinion and made the bill Act No. 212 late last Friday.

Hemp is being grown in more and more countries around the world. It is even being grown in Iceland! In Australia Hemp Industry Bill 2008 has now passed through both Houses of the New South Wales Parliament. The bill introduces a new licensing scheme to allow the production of industrial hemp there.

Here in the U.S. we are subjected to misinformation on a grand scale. We can and must correct stories like the ditchweed is marijuana story below. It is time consuming, but is well worth the effort. DEA marked their 35th anniversary this month, so we don't expect the lies from them and the ONDCP to stop anytime soon barring a miracle.

We are now looking forward to the next legislative season when we will have the opportunity to introduce or re-introduce hemp farming bills, study bills and resolutions on the state and federal level. All of this will take planning, coordination and funding. Please make a contribution to Vote Hemp today to help us continue our work and bring hemp farming back to America.
