Drug War Chronicle - Oregon will soon become the ninth state to legalize industrial hemp. It still remains illegal under federal law, to protect Hearst's forests and du Pont's bleach.

The states that have okayed hemp production are Hawaii, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Montana, North Dakota, Vermont and West Virginia. North Dakota has even issued licenses to would-be hemp farmers for the past two years, but the federal prohibition has prevented any hemp planting.
