Andrew Southcott is IGNORANT – hemp is not a drug, and is nothing to do with normalising the use of marijuana. There is no difference between a high-thc seed and a low-thc seed – both seeds do not contain THC. If they are hulled or pressed into oil then there is ZERO chance they can turn into a drug form in any way. The hulled seed, protein powder and oil are the main food ingredients for hemp, and if the Government chooses can be the only food ingredients.
Please phone and tell Andrew how you feel: http://www.andrewsouthcott.com/ContactAndrew.aspx
The Federal Government currently supports Southpott.
Except for this view, scientists from FSANZ and a risk assessment continue to prove that, as has been found in most other western countries – hemp seeds, hemp foods and hemp oil contain NO risk of turning the public onto the drug form of cannabis, and IS a healthy nutritional addition to the Australian diet.
and from yesterday:
The Channel 7 Sunrise program this morning ran a ridiculous segment about the possible FSANZ approval.
