Suggestion: Follow up story(s): non-drug hemp being grown & being processed into food product

On 17/3/2011 and 24/3/2012 your newspaper ran stories about the above. At COAG meeting held 7th December 2012 Approval for marketing of non-drug hemp products for human consumption was deferred until COAG meeting scheduled for Sept 2013.
May I suggest consideration be given for a follow up story. For contrast it may be possible to find out how the CSG company mentioned in your article 5/2/2013 and non-drug hemp growers have been treated by government(s)
Recently 2/4/2013 I started an on-line petition "IT'S TIME for Non Drug, Hemp Food Products to be Approved for Human Food Consumption in Australia"

If you wish to include the link above in any article you may choose to print please take my approval to do so as given.

Disclosure Statement.
At a David Bowie concert held in Adelaide in the early 80's I may have passively consumed marjana. Have worked with people who consumed actively. Enough to put me off. Currently I use two non-drug hemp products transdermally and have found them to be very good.
I'm a retail customer of one grower / value adding processor who has emailed me helpful information for petition. This grower is also providing product samples for me to photogragh so that I can up load photos to petition.
I have not and will not accept financial gain for creating and managing petition.

Thank you for taking the time to read my story suggestion.
