Hemp Nostalgia

What Happened?
  • CC How has this affected you?I am still trying
    to make sense of it all. I am writing a book. I
    am suing the Nicaraguan government. They stole
    our machinery, our crop, our payroll. They stole
    a year of my life from me. They owe us millions
    of dollars. My son might be alive if they hadn't
    done this to me. I can't sleep at night. I feel
    like I may never be healthy again.
  • The thing that gets me, you know, is that it was
    all because of a plant.

FRANCE

  • The Body Shop may be prosecuted for promoting
    drug use after French police raided a branch of
    the ecologically friendly retail group in
    Aix-en-Provence. They seized stocks of hand
    lotion, lip conditioner and body oil from the
    companys new hemp product range, claiming that
    they encouraged the use of cannabis.
  • Youd have to smoke a hemp joint the size of a
    telephone pole to get the least buzz and youd
    die from carbon monoxide first," Anita Roddick,
    the founder of The Body Shop, said yesterday.
    She expressed "amazement" at the action of the
    gendarmes, who also seized all promotional
    material on the products during the raid on
    Wednesday.
  • The seized items were returned, but a report was
    submitted to the public prosecutor in
    Aix-en-Provence.
