Whats that you say? Cig ads are not on TV? hmmm interesting.. it seems smoking is looked on with disdain and is almost universally viewed as being not glamorous, why would that be diff just cause marijuana was legal?
which brings us right back to:

Yes there is a difference between the THC levels of Industrial Hemp and recreational/medicinal Marijuana. You cannot smoke enough Hemp to get you high. This is a factor for outside Marijuana growers. The Hemp will pollinate Marijuana and ruin the harvest by diluting the THC level.
If the DEA was interested in stamping out the growing of POT in national parks and public lands, they would plant hemp and let it grow wild. But they would rather spend billions choppering in with a special forces type team to raid the grow sites. And we tax payers foot the bill.
Now, as an import from Mexico... yeah I can see our idiotic government allowing imported Marijuana, instead of protecting the, pardon the expression, home grown industry. the idiots. I mean we already import a lot of Hemp products. In 1997 an conservative estimate was $2.9 million trade deficit on Hemp product imports.
