'Don't Go Wobbly On Hemp'; The Body Shop Pitches President Clinton on Hemp Following Air Force One Controversy

    WASHINGTON, Feb. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- The Body Shop Founder Anita Roddick
 today sent President Clinton a letter and a packet of Hemp products urging
 him: "Don't go wobbly with misinformation. Hemp is a good product and not a
 drug." Roddick wrote in response to controversy that emerged when it became
 known that Hemp beer has been served on Air Force One on the return of the
 President from Mexico. Clinton "broke the hemp barrier" despite U.S. military
 rules against hemp products imposed several weeks ago.
     "Your framers wrote the Declaration of Independence on paper made from it
 ... Hemp makes you feel good without doing anything bad," wrote Roddick to
     Roddick's letter to President Clinton follows:
     Congratulations on breaking the hemp barrier on Air Force One.
     Don't go wobbly with misinformation: Hemp is a good product and it's not a
 drug. Throughout the centuries, hemp helped build the pyramids, make paper and
 equip Viking ships with sails. George Washington farmed it. Your framers wrote
 the Declaration of Independence on paper made from it. FDR said it was
 patriotic to grow it. Hemp made products America and its allies used to win
 World War II. Hemp makes you feel good without doing anything bad.
     Across the planet, firms and consumers use it for food, clothing, fuel and
 lotions to make people feel more comfortable in their own skin. Surely, your
 Air Force doesn't have regulations against that!
     Please accept with my compliments a set of The Body Shop Hemp products for
 use in the White House. We hope you will consider The Body Shop among your
 allies as you experience the benefits of products made with Hemp.
