On two side notes, Dana Beal is in Wisconsin and looks to be here for the marches, but not way we had hoped. Dana Beal is still in a Wisconsin jail cell, Iowa County Jail to be specific as being reported on the Facebook page Free Dana Beal Free Ourselves. For those who do not know, New York pot activist Dana Beal was arrested on Jan. 6 with 186 pounds of marijuana during a traffic stop in Barneveld, Wisconsin. He and driver Lance Ramer of Omaha, Nebraska are currently be held on $50,000 bond each in the Iowa County Jail (1205 N. Bedette St., Dodgeville, WI 53533).
The second point worth noting is that many marches throughout the United States will occur during Hemp History Week 2011. Organizers of Hemp History Week urge advocates not to confuse marijuana and hemp, as they are promoting the benefits of the industrial uses of the hemp cannabis plant for food, fuel and fiber products. Hemp History Week seeks to celebrate America’s rich history with industrial hemp and generate strong support for the re-legalization of hemp farming. The blog of Northern Wisconsin NORML reported on some of the rich hemp history in Wisconsin and will conducting local awareness campaigns during hemp history week. The 2010 Milwaukee Marijuana March was a huge success and we expect the same again this year.
