Questions for Karen Armstrong, Charter for Compassion

Would you agree that our freedom to farm "every herb bearing seed" is the first test of religious freedom? Do you agree that food insecurity and malnutrition are antithetical to a compassionate society?

Specifically, are you aware of the essential resource scarcity that prohibition of Cannabis hemp seed has imposed? Do you know that seven U.S. Presidents have signed Executive Orders identifying hemp as a strategic food resource, yet in the US it's treated as a Schedule One "drug"?

Finally, will you help me to educate people about the nutritional value of hemp seed? I invite everyone's participation in exercising essential civilian demand for hemp before next spring, so that hundreds of millions of people can feed themselves.
