Crazed hemp seed energy bar addicts

Is the DEA on drugs? The DEA wants to outlaw food products containing hemp seed because marijuana (right-wing religious conservatives probably know it as the “demon” or “devil weed”) comes from the same type of plant (Cannabis). Are they also planning to pull Coca Cola off the shelves as well? (Coca is the plant cocaine comes from.)

Attorney General Ashcroft and the DEA probably still believe that health food stores are breeding grounds for hippies, environmentalists and other “radicals” prompting them to send their jack-booted thugs on witch hunts to roust local co-ops looking for hemp seeds. I will continue to believe the DEA has fried it’s collective “hive mind” on alcohol, tobacco and caffeine until I read about crazed hemp seed energy bar addicts holding up liquor stores to pay for their habits.
