The CEO of Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap locked himself into a cage with hemp plants to protest the U.S policy on hemp farming. The U.S hemp importer bets President Obama and U.S government can't prove hemp plants are marijuana, as American farmers are shut out of the hemp growing industry.

Bronner claims in protest that the plants locked in the cage are not marijuana and therefore have no drug value. He claims that they were grown from Canadian industrial hemp seed and have no use as a recreational or medicinal drug.

Bronner said his company purchases 20 tons of hemp seed oil from Canada each year, and would like to give that order to American farmers. Bronner claims that hemp seed and fiber products had retail sales in the U.S last year of over $400 million dollars.
