"What happens when a state legalizes the growing of Roundup Ready Bollgard cotton but the patent war-addicted Monsanto intercepts the seeds?"

Wait... what were we talking about?

Didn't watch the video, but I'm assuming it was hemp seeds. They're fairly high in protein, and popular for vegetarians as a salad topping.

I pray for the raped women he raped in a rape fueled rape rage after eating the hemp seeds.

I'm drinking my after-workout smoothy with added hemp protein, so I'm really getting a kick.

Checked around other sites, sadly ALL right-wing wank-mags, but yeah.  He ate a granola bar with hemp seeds in it as part of an entirely legal act which was a cute little libertarian dog-whistle.  He still condemned drug use but hey let's ignore that in favor of "government bad, now let me get high."

The actual issue is that apparently hemp seeds were imported from Italy and the DEA nabbed them despite the seeds being legal.  So he wasn't exactly wrong.

You can get hemp cereal a Trader Joe's. It I remember right, it sells for 4.20.

Orwellian name. Reason is actually a hardcore libertarian/neoconfederate leaning news site.

It brings to mind the PHd Comic about "Just because someone agrees with you on an issue, doesn't mean they're your ally". "Legalize Pot! And make those gays and blacks stand up when a white gets on the bus!"

You can't grow it, but you can import it. I'm not sure why Republicans hate American farmers so much.

They don't like farmers because actual farmers get in the way of farming corporations.

You should install my Fark Derper script if you have Greasemonkey or the equivalent. It makes the Politics tab much easier to read, and Reason is one of the links it indicates as DERP to save on brain cells.

Just be glad it wasn't rape seeds.

If that guy lived at East Campus (which I think he did from my feeble googling) I think that hemp seed garnished granola bars wouldn't even come close to registering as a problem for him.

The "Progressive" one looks like it might be kind of amusing if it weren't so damned hard to read. The "Statist" one was just stupid.

Calling them hardcore is like calling the Brookings Institution hardcore state-moderate-leftist.

And I have no idea where you got that "neoconfederate" horseshiat. Neither do they, seeing as the last time they had anything at all to say about the Confederacy they called it a statist hot mess of a government.

You might want to set down for this, then, because I have some shocking news. That whole "States rights, let the states decide" spiel is often doublespeak for letting the majority ride roughshod over the minorities of a State, and for repealing civil rights and minority protections that have been attained over the last 50 years. Ignoring the fact that you people think that the debacle over the Articles of Confederation won't be repeated.

The libertarian party has been infighting a war against these people for the last few decades.

You're going to cite ThinkProgress and an article that contains the sentence "Reason is firmly in the anti-neo-Confederate camp" as proof that Reason  is neoconfederate?

Reason is basically Republicans minus Jesus freaks, plus pot, minus corporate welfare, minus guys with big belt buckles who think Hillary had Vince Foster beamed up by a UFO.
