FILE NAME DDI 2008 <BQ>    Your Name 1NC DEA CP Counter Plan Text: The Drug Enforcement Administration should legalize the growth of industrial hemp for the production of alternative energy. Observation 1 – Topicality: The Counter Pan is not topical because it uses the DEA instead of the USFG Observation 2 – Competitiveness: the Counter Plan competes through the net benefits Observation 3 – Solvency: The DEA should regulate the production of industrial hemp in the U.S.  THE PEOPLES' SUMMIT , The OTHER Economic Summit , TOES '97 - Denver, June 20 - 22, 1997 "Working Alternatives: A World That Works", *Sen. Lloyd Casey, AHA Voter, former Colorado State Senato, Industrial Hemp: The fiber, pulp, and oil crop of the 21st Century, Important information on how you can help preserve forests, reduce pollution, save the family farm, and capitalize on a growing global industry, http://www.ese.upenn.edu/~rabii/toes/Toes97Prog2.html/ Industrial hemp should be regulated as an agricultural crop as it is in the other G7 nations. The DEA should be as capable as law enforcement in other countries of changing its regulations to allow the production of industrial hemp in the U.S. Encourage your federal legislators to use the G7 summit as an opportunity to explore industrial hemp production in other countries. Regulations should be adopted by the USDA, DEA, and other federal agencies that will allow U.S. farmers to produce industrial hemp profitably. Industrial hemp prohibition is an unfair trade barrier. U.S. farmers should be able to compete with the other G7 nations in the global marketplace. 1

FILE NAME DDI 2008 <BQ>    Your Name 1NC DEA CP The DEA can solve Seaton Thedinger, a class of 2006 candidate for the Juris Doctor degree at the University of Colorado School of Law. In 2002, he received his B.S. in Mathematics and Computer Science from Vanderbilt University, Spring, 2006, Colorado Journal of Int'l Envt'l Law and Policy Colorado Journal of International Environmental Law and Policy, Lexis, http://www.lexisnexis.com/us/lnacademic/search/journalssubmitForm.do The United States should realize the reactionary view of the DEA and change the regulations accordingly. The DEA should reclassify products containing less than 0.3 percent THC as "not marijuana." It has the power to promulgate this regulation without permission from Congress or other agencies . Although a citizen suit could challenge the agency's action in declaring hemp exempt from the legal definition of a drug status, given the legislative history of the CSA, the plain language of the statute, and the deference afforded agencies in these manners, the [*446] challenge would likely fail. Other options include congressional legislation declaring the intent to regulate hemp and allow its growth, or pressure from the President urging the DEA to change its interpretation. These actions will not occur until they are politically feasible, which requires that a majority of the electorate believe in industrial hemp's possibilities.
