Farmers Arrested Planting Hemp On DEA Headquarters Lawn

A group of civilly-disobedient hemp farmers and business leaders were arrested Tuesday morning while digging up the lawn to plant industrial hemp seeds at the headquarters of the Drug Enforcement Administration.

David Bronner, the president of Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps, a more than 60-year-old company that does tens of millions of dollars of business annually, was among those arrested.

Bronner buys the hemp used in his soaps from Canadian farmers. He was arrested outside the DEA museum, which shares space with the headquarters.

"Our kids are going to come to this museum and say, 'My God. Your generation was crazy. What the hell is wrong with you people?'" he said as Arlington County Police handcuffed him and walked him to a waiting car.

The group was arrested for trespassing.

Read more at HufPo, and please let me know if you have a better source of info, preferably from the organizers. Video on the bottom of that page.  You know, when they get out of jail for protesting the unconstitutional ban of a plant that is legal to own, and has no psychoactive propertiesl. Ever wonder why pot was illegal? its because of the interests of competive technology to Hemp, and Racism. Legal propriety be damned.
