Veg*ns rejoice - hemp will be legalised as food

A sensible decision for a change - Australia will permit low-THC hemp as a food, bringing the country in line with pretty much everywhere else.

The changes don't take effect for six months after gazettal, so until then it's still body scrubs only.

I'm surprised that the FSANZ hasn't tweeted this yet, but maybe they're looking for a suitable gif/meme to inspire them.

If you aren't aware why hemp seeds should be eaten, see the USDA Nutrient Database values and note the >30% (complete) protein content and excellent fatty acid profile.
