Throwback Thursday – Hemp Farmers Arrested Planting Hemp At DEA Headquarters
For those of you that don’t know, this week is the sixth annual Hemp History week. I thought it would be fun to post one of my favorite videos of all time. On October 13, 2009 hemp industry leaders and activists planted hemp seeds on the DEA’s front lawn. I first saw this footage on the movie Hempsters. The act resulted in a lot of arrests, but I still feel that the move was very symbolic and inspiring. This simple form of protest is still being applauded to this day, and will continue to be applauded until federal hemp prohibition is completely lifted.
