Hemp IS Marijuana---same plant. On the other hand the relationship between
Hemp and Marijuana is essentially the same as that between Poppyseeds and
Heroin or at least Opium. Or Cocaine and Coke (they say drugfree residue is
still part of the formula--heo knows?) Similar drug ratio... almost zip.
Still, if you down a can of poppyseeds you might flunk a drug test. Maybe if
you smoked a dozen yards of hemp rope you'd flunk one too. Get high? I'm not
thinking so.

Still the association to the drug is there and for whatever reason, good or
bad that the way it's dealt with. There are decent arguments on either side.
