I have this soap in my house! Soap maker busted in cage filled with hempSubmitted by ralph hornsby on Tue, 06/26/2012 - 16:18
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.
