Pot Eradication Money Rejected By Jason Armstrong
CN Source: Hawaii Tribune Herald May 22, 2008 Hawaii

The County Council on Wednesday "just said no" to $441,000 to continue the helicopter-based marijuana eradication program. Lawmakers on May 7 cast a second and final vote to accept the state and federal "Green Harvest" grants. However, those actions were deemed invalid because the two bills were not published in local newspapers, as required by law, following the council's first vote April 22.

Eradicated Marijuana Is 98 Percent Ditchweed
More than 98 percent of all of the marijuana plants seized by law enforcement in the United States is feral hemp not cultivated cannabis, according to newly released data by the Drug Enforcement Administration's (DEA) Domestic Cannabis Eradication/Suppression Program and the Sourcebook of Criminal Justice Statistics.

According to the data, available online at: of the estimated 223 million marijuana plants destroyed by law enforcement in 2005, approximately 219 million were classified as "ditchweed," a term the agency uses to define "wild, scattered marijuana plants [with] no evidence of planting, fertilizing, or tending." Unlike cultivated marijuana, feral hemp contains virtually no detectable levels of THC, the psychoactive component in cannabis, and does not contribute to the black market marijuana trade.

Previous DEA reports have indicated that between 98 and 99 percent of all the marijuana plants eradicated by US law enforcement is ditchweed.

Say No To Green Harvest

Spraying Ditchweed Could Devastate Midwest Game Bird Populations by Joel M. Vance
Midwest game has gone to "pot" for both cover and food.
That's right friends, while shoplifters lurk, crooks creep and purse-pinchers prowl, Indiana cops are tossing time and manpower after an effort to poison wild-growing hemp plants which, if you're up on your botany, you know don't have enough THC (marijuana's active ingredient) to get you any higher than eyelevel to an earthworm. Nonetheless, armed with an annual budget of $330,000 state police are quick to affix brown thumbs to their blue arms as they spray herbicide up and down the territory. In 2000, DEA shelled out $13 million to aid local efforts like Indiana's.

According to the July 6 Munster, Ind., Times, "law enforcement officials have begun searching trenches, roadways and farm fields for ditch weed."

98% of their efforts are worthless.

Police officers acquitted for beating a 64 yr old man recently in New Orleans. In the words of their defense attorney "all he had to do was comply"....and they wouldn't have fractured his face.
