Hemp Food industry wins big

It appears the DEA knows a losing battle when it sees it this time and will not be appealing the 9th Circuit's ruling allowing the sales and consumption of hemp food thus ending a three year battle between the feds and the hemp food industry.

"It's a great legal victory," said John W. Roulac, chief executive of Nutiva, a Sebastopol, Calif., producer of hemp protein powder and nutrition bars.

Indeed it is. Nice to have some good news for a change.
