Why Do Cops Hate Hemp?

https://stopthedrugwar.org/files/legalizehemp.png

The effort to legalize hemp farming in California is heating up again, and unfortunately, law enforcement interests are still doing everything in their power to stand in the way:

Last week the California Narcotics Officers' and Police Chiefs Associations announced that they oppose Senator Mark Leno's hemp farming bill, SB 676. Their opposition letters were sent less than 24 hours before the hearing in Agriculture Committee and featured incorrect and outdated arguments against the bill. (Vote Hemp)

There's nothing too surprising about that, but it continues to amaze me that opposing hemp – which is used to make just about anything besides drugs – would actually be considered a political priority for the law enforcement lobby. Who in their right mind would even bothering making a scene over something like this?

The answer is John Lovell, the Sacramento lobbyist for both law enforcement groups. Fortunately Vote Hemp attended the hearing in force, thanks to your support, and we were ready to counter his tired old claims that hemp farming was somehow going to make life difficult for law enforcement. In fact, Lovell was on the defensive and ended up being removed from the witness table by the Sergeant at Arms during the hearing due to repeatedly interrupting other witnesses!

Wow, that sounds like an instant classic. Let's please get this up on YouTube if anyone has it, because this guy has been a nuisance for quite some time and hasn't received the recognition he deserves for his deranged drug war demagoguery.

The bottom line is that hemp is food, not drugs. If you have a problem with hemp, you're anti-food, and the very notion of being anti-food is so staggeringly absurd, it could only emerge from the perverted fantasies of paranoid, overzealous drug warriors.

They are actually claiming that allowing hemp farming would complicate the ever-so-effective methods by which they've been stopping people from growing pot across California. And this is all based on the theory that people will hide marijuana plants in their hemp fields, which would almost makes sense except that cross pollination would turn their sour diesel into a granola bush.

Leaving aside all the other reasons that marijuana prohibition promotes widespread waste, suffering, and idiocy, the simple fact that a healthy food plant is banned because it looks like pot is so intellectually and economically devastating that undoing this one insane injustice would by itself constitute sufficient grounds for making marijuana legal.

a new level

The hemp thing always seemed pretty stupid to me - even stupider than marijuana prohibition. This, of course, makes hemp prohibition approach levels of stupidity that are near infinity - we should re-legalize it if only to prevent some sort of black hole of idiocy from developing.

if i recall correctly, the whole hemp thing was started because it was a threat to the paper industry? and some guy who owned paper mills also owned a newspaper, and fueled the hell out of the reefer madness machine?

if so... what a dick.

talibomb claiming to be exempt from the ten commandments

These Nazi claim that no one goes to jail for pot do you think we are that stupid these cockroach cowards attack cancer people, steal cars from the handicap, they stole campZoëbecause the camp site wont join these scum in their war. And you believe these backstabbing scums are just turning a blind eye when it comes to the poor and black? With all the boarded up buildings in north St Louis they will try to tell you its just black on black crime or that they were just bad money managers couldn’t save when these scum are hiding in the back ground using their hi Tec weapons controlling the crave and carrying out their racist genocide. They just don’t make designer steroid for the jocks they just don’t control the crave with their nicotine patch and they just don’t turn a blind eye to the peaceful pot smoker. Stop these talibomb scum before they sell out our freedom for their wallets. Read more in the book ABOUT CHRISTIANS AND [email protected] amazon.com

How the electronic wizards of today are using their high technology to eliminate the undesirables and play god Let’s look at the facts since the beginning of time man has used magic to play god.

hemp v ganga

 

You make the important point that you can not grow hemp and ganga together in fact they may have to be grown in entirely different districts they are so incompatible. 

Yes it seems we are winning. I am so grateful its happening in my life time. Shame some of my best friends won't be here to see it happen. 

These guys are seriously freaking out and it's only going to get worse but it will be to our benefit. The storm around prop 19 was nothing. Next year the discussion about legalising will be huge.

Let's Educate With Facts

The time has come to stick to the facts. Industrial hemp (I feel it is important to us the word industrial) not only is important for food, it is one of the finest textiles nature produces. There are also many other products that can be produced with industrial hemp. Take a few minutes to go over the following link: http://www.nalhc.org//hemp_information/content/hemp.mj,html . I assure you that you will be glad you did.   Industrial hemp should be allowed to take over the tired old symbol of 5 leaves that does not represent true cannabis. When this is done, I suggest we who love and fight for cannabis adopt a fine US breed known as Matanuska Tundra as our poster child. I am 50 and jokingly tell my friends that looking at pictures of buds is old people porn. This specimen can be viewed online at: http://www.cannabis-seeds-bank.co.uk/index.php?page=1&act=viewCat&catld=91 . If unable this way, go to Attitude Seed Bank, then choose Sagarmatha Seedbank, then go to the second page and halfway down on the left this fine bud will reveal itself. Anyway, keep your emotions in your pocket when telling the facts of the finest single plant on the face of the earth and let's educate not eradicate.

One other thing

Not only will the hemp cross pollinate with the medicinal cannabis, but you can instantly tell whether a plant is hemp or medicinal by the way it is grown.   Hemp is grown very tightly together to stifle leaf and branch formation, because only the stalk and seed is wanted.  Medicinal cannabis is grown with each plant having lots of room to bush out and grow leaves and branches.  So, a  bushy plant that's off by itself with lots of room is the one they would be looking for, and a tightly grown field can't be anything other than hemp.  

primus's picture

Their argument that hemp

Their argument that hemp should be kept illegal because of its resemblance to cannabis for smoking makes about as much sense as the ancient banning of tomatos because the berries of tomatos resemble the berries of potatos, which are poisonous.  Of course tomatos are not poisonous, but that did not stop the prohibitionists then, nor does logic stop them now.

their hatred of hemp is an attack on the economy and on freedom

but their hatred of medicinal cannabis goes further, it's also an attack on common decency and is a crime against humanity. Holding seriously ill patients hostage to their hatred of recreational cannabis - are they insane? Maybe some of them are sadists.

Cops are terrible human beings

Cops drink and drive, do drugs, and abuse power. They love it!

Indeed. I have personally

Indeed. I have personally been in a vehicle full of people driven by an off-duty cop who was drinking at the wheel.

Indeed. I have personally

Indeed. I have personally been in a car full of people that was driven by an off-duty cop who was drinking at the wheel.

Agreed, I don't know how many

Agreed, I don't know how many pigs got caught drinking and driving in my town. and Get a slap on the wrist. Of the many cases there was one who hid his car to avoid investigation after being pulled over and let go. In another a pig let his his 13yr old daughter drive till she got lost, so being highly intoxicated he got behind the wheel. All while 2 people were passed out in back of the car covered in vomit. And they still get benifits during" investigation" and before court? I think they should be off the force. But will that happen? No.

cops and alcohol

In my state a drunk driving off duty cop killed someone hit and run and tried to hide the evidence. A few months before that a drunk driver killed a cop doing traffic control duty. If cops aren't doing bad things UI alcohol, bad things are being done to them UI alcohol. It all makes the laws against weed look flat out bogus 

Please do not group all of us together

I am a federal police officer that used to live in California, Humboldt County to be exact. You are correct that many law enforcement officers are wrong in what they do. I know of officers that are crooked, and that drink and drive and do drugs as well as many other average citizens do. I choose not to do those things, but the actions of the bad cops make the rest of us good officers look bad. We hate them as much as you do if not more. I actually support the legalization of hemp farming because it would bring so many beneficial products to the world. I had a friend tell me today that there is some place out there that actually makes police uniforms out of hemp. I would love to wear them if I could find them. I am also in support of legalizing marijuana as well because of the proven medical benefits it provides. Right now my wife's medical condition would be greatly benefited by the use of it, but we are unable to because it is illegal and would get me fired and both of us put in jail.

If we used the money and efforts that we waste on fighting marijuana and hemp farmers for a more productive cause, we would be much better off. 

Again, to make it completely clear to "big brother" that is probably monitoring this website, I do not nor have I ever smoked marijuana or done any illegal drugs and never plan to. But that is my choice, and I should not force my choices on anyone else. And also to "big brother", you can test me any time and as many times as you would like, you will not find anything unless you put it in there yourselves.

Education is key

When alcohol was prohibited in the United States, it was still legal to grow corn. Corn can be made into whiskey, but the government did not try to over reach into outlawing corn.

Hemp is related to marijuana. However, you can not magically turn hemp into marijuana just as you can not make textiles from marijuana stalks.

Hemp has been legal to grow -- with a license -- in Canada and European Union (EU) since around 1996. There have been no increased levels of drug use in any of these nations due to the production of hemp. There have been a few instances where teenagers have snuck into hemp fields and stole some of the plants. However, they never repeated their stunt as they easily realized that smoking hemp will not get them high.

Teenagers in the US Midwest also try to smoke "ditchweed" (feral hemp from WWII Hemp for Victory campaign) that grows along farm fences. After realizing that this ditchweed is no good, they don't return for more.

The argument that marijuana could be hidden inside a hemp field are easily discredited. If someone were to do this in a hemp field grown for fiber, the marijuana plant would be cut down prior to its flowering (marijuana is made from flowers).

If marijuana were hidden in a hemp for seed crop, the pollen from hemp would negate the potency of marijuana plant to the point of making it ineffective, useless. This pollen would also make the marijuana plant turn to seed. This marijuana plant would also most likely be cut-up in a combine long before the criminal trespasser who planted the marijuana in a hemp field would ever come back to harvest their plant, much less remember where its located.

So, the argument that marijuana could be hidden in a hemp field are baseless. In fact, if the argument were valid, then corn and forests should be made illegal since marijuana can be hidden in them. In fact, the majority of marijuana is grown on public lands (West coast forests and Appalachian mountains). The rest is smuggled in from Mexico or grown domestically indoors. Should houses and apartments be made illegal because some people can grow marijuana indoors? Should electricity be made illegal because some people may grown marijuana indoors?

Sorry, you have it backwards.

Hemp is NOT outlawed because "marijuana" is a proscribed drug.  It's actually the other way around.  "Marijuana" was criminalized to prevent the competition hemp would have had with Hearst's pulp process for making paper, Dupont's newly created rayon fiber, also the cotton industry, and the petroleum industry's many products, including fuel and plastics (most of which can be made from hemp with less environmental impact, not to mention more cheaply).  These industries joined Harry Anslinger's crusade against "marijuana" which was based in Anslinger's desire to maintain his power, which otherwise would have ended with alcohol prohibition; and they all used racism and fear mongering in their propaganda program in Hearst's newspapers to "make it so".

Also, those who have been growing "marijuana" for medical purposes and the black market, know that the stalks and fibers from their version of the cannabis plant are actually superior to hemp, so would the seed be superior for food purposes and fuel oil if the plants were allowed to go to seed.  Hemp is "marijuana's" poor cousin.

Hemp Uniforms for Cops and Military Personnel

Imagine the millions of dollars that could be saved on uniforms if police departments would just make friends with the environmentally friendly and durable hemp fiber.

For me, cotton/hemp blends in clothing have lasted up to three times longer than straight cotton or synthetic fiber products.  After about eight years of washing and wearing a favorite hemp/cotton shirt once a week, the cotton finally fell apart while the hemp fibers remained intact.

It’s these kinds of wasteful and unproductive prohibition prejudices that add to the cost of the drug war in ways that aren’t immediately obvious.  Clothing that wears out too fast wastes our money.  It costs police and other uniformed professionals money as well, along with whatever entity or company might purchase or lease industrial clothing or uniforms. 

The technology exists to create PCR kits that test for the genetics of hemp to distinguish it from psychoactive marijuana, given that crusaders such as John Lovell apparently lack the IQs to distinguish hemp in any other way.  In fact, if hemp is to be grown and regulated in the United States, the USDA should oversee it, not a bunch of crazed, mindless prohibitionists.

First they ignore you, then

First they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win.

--Mohandas Karmachand Gandhi

Moonrider, you're minimizing the role of racism

That and the Mormon hatred of any 'euphoriants' except their own religion were what made possible the first state laws against cannabis. Later the infamous Anslinger pushed hot buttons of racism against Mexicans and blacks, and white women who treated black men as social equals.  I don't know how to weigh the relative impact of racism vs. economic threat from industrial hemp.

The temporary ban on alcohol in the 20's and early 30's was presumably very facilitative to bans on other substances. Much easier to take away rights that only affect a small number of people when you've already taken away a similar right affecting half the country.

One of the reasons law

One of the reasons law enforcement is against hemp, oddly enough, is that eradication efforts around the country are funded based upon plant counts. The more eradicated plants, the more money allotted for the next year's efforts. The majority of the plants eradicated are, in fact, feral hemp. What happens to this river of funds if L.E. is suddenly forced to distinguish between hemp and marijuana? The dishonesty is disgusting but that's the facts.

Everybody has made factual

Everybody has made factual points. We need to understand that a big power is behind the prohibition of marijuana. It all comes down to money. Sooner, rather than later, hemp will be legal by a majority vote here in California. It is definitely moving that way. We need to watch what happens, when it does there will definitely be a judge ready to strike it down. We need to keep the public informed about the truth. Don't let politicians, law enforcement and big pharma tell the people lies about hemp. We are doing our part. www.thinksubstance.com
