Lack of disclosure at the law school application phase might be problematic for that reason. Is there any way you can list the employment without getting into the federally illegal aspect of it?



I doubt the company he worked for was called "pot smokers R us". Nobody is going to research the name of the company if he puts it down as his employer if he doesn’t stress it heavily in the rest of his app.

Also, grizz is right. We don’t need a new material to make rope or sails or whatever the fuck else you want to use hemp for. There would be no new jobs created by some emerging hemp-rope industry you dream of. People want to get high, fine, campaign for that. Don’t say it is for any purpose other than that.


Probably no one in the law school application process. The chances of it being noticed in C&F are larger, though, and then you might have to face down "why didn't you disclose this when you applied" types of questions.

C&F is a really thorough process. It's important not to underestimate what they dredge up.

The quoted post makes me think that pot would be legal right now if it wasn't correlated with stupidity for the last 40 years.

Wheat is probably another good candidate for most important domesticated crop

I have read barley was the first domesticated grain which led to the rise of civilizations in the Middle East, so yet another good candidate.
