While America’s economy is suffering staggering losses in jobs and debt, the Obama administration is creating jobs for Chinese workers by selling hemp scarves on its website — even while industrialized hemp remains illegal for U.S. farmers to grow!
The “Monique Pean” scarf runs $95 on BarackObama.com (http://store.barackobama.com/monique-pean.html), and is described as:
Designed by Monique Pean. Circle scarf made of 45% certified organic cotton / 55% hemp, measures 42” L X 21” W. Made in the USA.

It may be “made in the USA,” but the hemp it uses is imported from nations like China because under the Obama administration, industrial hemp remains illegal to grow in the USA.
The hemp hypocrisy
Thanks to Obama, anyone who tries to grow hemp will be raided at gunpoint by U.S. federal agents, prosecuted for felony crimes and thrown in prison.
So why is it okay for Barack Obama to buy industrial hemp grown in China, but keep industrial hemp criminalized in America?
Robert Scott Bell asked this question on the August 2, 2012 broadcast of the Robert Scott Bell Show. Download the MP3 here: http://radio.naturalnews.com/Archive-RobertScottBell.asp
The hemp segment is right at the beginning of the show. Also covered on the show:
Barack Sells Hemp From China for Money, Denying American Farmers Right to Grow Cannabis, Jon Rappoport, DARPA Seal Flu Shots, Medical Martial Law, Dunderheaded Dentists on Fluoride, Cameroon Cess Pools Really Vaccine Deficiencies, School Shot Exemptions, Menstrual Marketing, Digital Pills, Biological Freedom, Smoking Telephone Poles and more on The Robert Scott Bell Show.
If Obama really wanted to create jobs and lift America’s economy, he could simply issue an executive order declaring all industrial hemp to be legal for growing and selling in America.
I’m not saying I agree with the abuse of power of the President invoking executive orders (and bypassing Congress), but if Obama is going to use executive orders, he could use them to restore freedom by legalize farming and helping create industrial hemp jobs in America.
But Obama refuses to do this. While more and more farmers declare bankruptcy and the economic backbone of America is shattered, he buys hemp from China instead of allowing American farmers to grow it right at home!
While Obama leaves U.S. farmers to be crushed under agricultural bankruptcy, U.S. Senator Ron Wyden is actually trying to do something to restore economic abundance to America’s farmers. He, along with U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, is working to legalizing industrial hemp farming. As NaturalNews has reported:
“The only thing standing in the way of taking advantage of this very profitable crop is a lingering misunderstanding about its use,” said Wyden, “and the amendment that I have filed on this issue will end a ridiculous regulation once and for all.” (http://www.naturalnews.com/036231_Ron_Wyden_industrial_hemp_decrimina…)
Rep. Ron Paul has also sponsored H.R. 1831: The Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2011. Read the full text of that bill here: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/112/hr1831
