This, courtesy of Sally Jo Sorensen (who is the uncredited origin of many a story published by others as their own work) is unbelieveable:
[Minnesota] Representative Bob Barrett (R-Lindstrom) may think that marijuana is highly addictive, but at least he’s not comparing hemp with cyanide.
That would be Austin Mayor Tom Stiehm, a former law enforcement official and detective who was assigned to the Southeast Minnesota Drug Task Force. A September event planned to promote the hemp industry may have planted the seeds of a freedom of speech battle in the Southern Minnesota meat-packing town. The kerfuffle may prefigure the debate coming next session if a bill legalizing medical marijuana gains momentum.
This just might top the Great Nonexistent Northfield Smack Epidemic. Geez Louise.
