I have this soap in my house! Soap maker busted in cage filled with hemp

David Bronner, CEO of Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps of Escondido, was arrested Monday near the White House after firefighters cut him out of a steel cage.

Bronner had locked himself into the cage along with a dozen industrial hemp plants growing in pots to protest the federal government’s policy that prevent U.S. farmers from growing the crop.

According to The Washington Post, Bronner spent about three hours in the cage before being removed and arrested. He was later released.

Bronner has been a hemp activist for more than a decade. In 2009 he was arrested for trying to plant hemp seeds in front of the Drug Enforcement Administration’s headquarters in Arlington, Va.

Wait, "trying" to plant hemp

Wait, "trying" to plant hemp seeds? Yes, this guy is indeed an activist. There is no trying here. You simply put the seeds into the ground(or even just onto it), and as long as they dont get dried out or drowned, they will grow. The same is true of most plants, but hemp is supposed to be particularly hardy.
Would have been alot more funny if it was done secretly and then out of no where pops up these plants.

Interesting thought, there is a plant that looks very similiar to hemp. I believe its a perennial, not sure, but if they got some of that growing around, plant a few seeds in there, no on would notice until the plants got to be large. haha

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

use this soap

all of the time - it is excellent
everyone here should go get some - it is great.

this is getting unreal with the abuse of authority and cracking down on all things natural.

i used to use the almond soap for everything

i used it for shampoo, washing machine detergent, and drumroll - toothpaste.
that stuff is just so expensive. I make my own soap and detergent now.

Hahaha wow I just bought his

Hahaha wow I just bought his Tea Tree Hemp Soap yesterday and used it this morning.

*BREAKING NEWS*

The Center for Disease Creation (CDC) has no definite scientific research proving that a disease exists which could render the infected to a zombie like status.

Thanks, thanks for that blinding flash of the obvious. Glad you wasted $500,000+ figuring that one out.
