     Subject: They say it's a $250,000,000 crop waiting to be planted, but there is one
     hurdle. It is illegal. This leads one to ask, "Should the United States legalize the
     cultivation of 'industrial' hemp? Topics include what differences exist, if any,
     between hemp and marijuana; why it is legal to import hemp into the United
     States, but not legal to farm it; and what impact the legalization of hemp might
     have on the nation's drug use.

LAKOTA INDUSTRIAL HEMP PROJECT AT PINE RIDGE, SD

United States vs. Alex & Percy White Plume
     On August 10, 2002, the DEA filed civil suit to stop Alex White Plume from growing industrial hemp on Lakota sovereign land near Pine Ridge, South Dakota. It was another example of ongoing harrassment by the DEA. Check out the links below for the entire story of why the Lakota have the right to grow hemp on their land (1868 Fort Laramie Treaty) and how they plan to use hemp to create jobs and build housing on the reservation. The Pine Ridge reservation is one of the poorest places in America. Why is the DEA continuing to threaten and harass Alex White Plume and his family for simply growing industrial hemp?
