Nice wording of the headline on the industrial hemp story, "Farmers
seek the freedom to grow hemp" (March 13).

In opposition to these farmers the Office of National Drug Control
Policy stated that "in many instances the mature plants (marijuana and
hemp) look the same."

That reflects stupidity based on ignorance. Are these the people we
want heading up our drug education policy?
