Wow - thanks to Ron Harper & friends for taping a small event held July 2001 - 3 months before 911, on Steve Groffs famous No-til farm in Southern Lancaster County Pennsylvania. I met Grayson & Kellei Sigler at an event in Washington DC & encouraged them to come up to Hempfield Township Pennsylvania. They were just as upset about the possibilaty of banning hemp foods Here is some rough footage of me greeting the car as it pulled in & tuned down. Kelly & Grayson also speak about their journey - they ultimately went over their 13,000 mile goal & traveled around the US & through Canada coming back to Washington DC - visit more at www.hempcar.org - Pictured below Maggie a friend of the Burkholder hemp fans - Hempzels didn't supply $$ to the event, just time, connections, inspiration and motivation on their journey of 13,000 miles. I am happy to have played a small part in this historic event PRE 911 world. Download their flyer (www.hempcar.org has recently been deleted? sad - 7/11/17)

2003 - April Published earlier I got a call from an Los Angeles Times newspaper reporter during the time that we were raising a ruckus about this arbitrary rule, the DEA was telling us to get rid of our hemp seed. We shipped out some Sourdough Hempzels & here it is in part of the article.

Quoted early 2003 when Hempzels was a signature to the suit against the DEA sponsored by Dr. Bronners Soaps & other HiA members who were being hurt by this un Constitutional way of trying to ban a legitimate natural right. Below - during a rally throughout the US sponsored by Dr. Bronners & the Hemp Industries Assocation we gave samples and ralled in front of the DEA regional offices that hemp foods were not going to get people high. Hempzels has been a signator of TestPledge since 2001.
