A Request For Presidential Action Related To The Cultivation Of Industrial Hemp By US Farmers

This petition requests that President Obama instruct Attorney General Eric Holder to work with the states of Colorado and Washington [and additionally any state in the future who, through ballot initiative and an affirmative vote of the state's citizens, pass similar laws] to honor the legalization of industrial hemp as a states rights issue. Further, we request that in the event of the failure of the 113th Congress to act on pending legislation addressing both states rights and de-coupling that the President issue an Executive Order de-coupling industrial hemp from Schedule 1 of the Controlled Substances Act, honor the rights of the states in the absence of a change in current federal law and move the regulatory oversight of industrial hemp from the DEA to USDA
