MP gets the lowdown on hemp and marijuana

Northern Star
PAGE MP Kevin Hogan admitted that until yesterday his understanding of the difference between hemp and marijuana was murky. But after sitting down with hemp expert Paul Benhaim, who founded Bangalow-based Hemp Foods Australia, Mr Hogan said he understood that hemp was not a drug. The problem is, at least a few of his state and federal colleagues may not see it that way. Mr Benhaim is hoping repeated recommendations by the Food Standards authority to legalise the hemp as a food are supported by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG).
