From NORML.ORG:

Industrial Hemp Bill Introduced in California!

Dear NORML Supporter:

NORML is pleased to announce that Assembly Bill 684, an act to enact
statewide regulations on the cultivation of industrial hemp as an
agricultural commodity, has been introduced in the state legislature.
If approved, this measure will to allow state-licensed farmers to
cultivate hemp as an economic product. (Read the full text of the
bill here
)

According to a 2005 Congressional Resource Service (CRS) report, the
United States is the only developed nation that fails to cultivate
industrial hemp as an economic crop. Hemp is a distinct variety of
the plant species cannabis sativa that contains only minute (less
than 1%) amounts of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary
psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. Farmers worldwide grow hemp
commercially for fiber, seed, and oil for use in a variety of
industrial and consumer products, including food and clothing.

Last year, a version of this bill passed through the California
legislature only to be vetoed by Governor Schwarzenegger. Do not let
AB 684 meet the same fate! Please take two minutes of your time to
write your Representative and tell him or her how important it is
that they support industrial hemp. For your convenience, a
pre-written letter is available

Sincerely,
Erin Dame
NORML Outreach Coordinator
