The sweet smell of Washington's state flower the magnolia was in the air as Air America host Randi Rhodes visited Seattle on or about 4:20PM on August 19 or 20 or so for this year's Hempfest. The "Fest" - as it's known to regulars - celebrates one of America's original crops, a versatile plant that can be used as both a food source and for industrial uses as well. Whether used to make animal feed, oil, moisturizer, clothing, twine, ropes, or even a storage pot, it truly is a plant of a thousand uses. And, it was even used to make the barrette that the gentleman in the video uses to tie up his hair! It truly is a superplant, and like the good environmentalist that she is, Randi Rhodes was there to celebrate its 1001 uses.
Seattle, of course, is also home to AAR's own KPTK 1090 AM, which has higher ratings than all other Washington state radio stations combined.
A note from the editor: "hemp" is not marijuana and just because Randi supports the cultivation of this wonderplant doesn't mean that she advocates the use of or even uses on air such mind-altering chemicals. No, there are other explanations.
Also, be sure and look out for the purple acid.

I'm surprised that this site hasn't posted that Mike Malloy was fired by AAR yesterday. Hey, let's get on it! :-)
