After a lengthy battle, the United States Drug Enforcement Agency and U.S. Customs will allow a shipment of sterilized hemp seeds across the border.
But Jean Laprise of Canadian-based hemp production and processing firm Kenex Ltd. said yesterday the American government had yet to fully release the 18,000-kilogram shipment.In August, U.S. officials seized the seeds in Detroit because they contain minute traces of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana."We now have a guarantee from the DEA and U.S. Customs that they will not seize any future shipments of hemp products from our company," Laprise said."It's a big win for the Canadian hemp industry." He said his firm is considering suing the U.S. government.Published: November 11, 1999 Copyright (c) 1999 The London Free Press,a division of Sun Media Corporation.
