Hillman, MI, June 12, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- In a meeting with the Hillman Township Board on May 14th Swift opened by Thanking the board for “taking the time considering a controversial issue which has the potential to be an economic boost to the local economy.” He continued by stating that “this has nothing to do with Marijuana, if you tried to smoke Hemp all you would get is diarrhea.”
When asked what could be made with hemp Swift presented the members of the board with a six page list of uses for the plant. Hillman Township supervisor Gary L. Boldery Jr. closed by saying that he would like to have a public meeting to see how the county and residents of Hillman feel about the issue before making a decision.
Swift also submitted a Resolution to Representative Matthew Gillard asking him to sponsor it in the Michigan House of representatives. Gillard has yet to respond.
"It is a common sentiment that the people of Northeast Lower Michigan has no voice in Lansing and people here are losing jobs on a weekly basis with no end in sight. We can make this a state wide issue if we use our voices and pass this resolution." Swift was quoted in a recent MySpace bulletin.
The DEA regulates Industrial Hemp and has hindered States wishes to study and grow the crop. With the introduction of Hemp farming Act of 2007 to Congress and North Dakota’s recent announcement that they intent to file a federal law suit for the right to regulate their Hemp program many believe that the DEA will lose their authority over the plant.
Swift has done a live interview on The Norm Jones show on WTCM AM 580 and a taped interview for WCMU Radio due to air soon.
