Best Excuse for the Munchies

Brian Cronin's Hemp Ice Cream

Editors' Picks

In support of Moscow Republican Rep. Tom Trail's drive to legalize hemp production in Idaho, Boise Democrat Rep. Brian Cronin took a trip down memory lane and the grocery aisle to show lawmakers that hemp is good for everything from drafting a declaration of independence and covering wagons to, yes, making ice cream. At a hearing for the proposal, which ultimately went up in smoke, Cronin produced a box of hemp "milk" available at Boise Co-Op in an effort to show how lame it is that you can buy hemp products but the plants themselves are illegal. Lame. Lame, indeed, dude.
