Two months ago, Drug War Chronicle reported a major court victory won by hemp industries against the DEA's attempt to ban hemp foods (http://stopthedrugwar.org/chronicle/324/hempvictory.shtml). DEA's legal maneuverings in this area appear to be fizzling to a sorry ending.

Earlier this week, DEA attorneys filed a petition for rehearing en banc by the 9th Circuit, but they submitted it one day after the deadline -- forcing them to have to file a motion for permission to file it one day late. The 9th Circuit denied the motion -- refusing even to consider DEA's petition for rehearing, let alone grant a rehearing.

DEA has filed a motion to reconsider that denial.
