The 200th anniversary of the War of 1812 holds special significance for Baltimore in the next few weeks ( "More details announced for Star-Spangled Spectacular Celebration Aug. 12). On Aug. 25, 1814, President James Madison, and his wife Dolly were forced to flee for their lives when the British army sacked and burned the White House.

CHICAGO -- U.S. farmers could be cultivating a lucrative cash crop for oils, clothes, rope and paper, if only the U.S. government would legalize it, according to a physicist at Argonne National Laboratory.And if other Americans want to smoke what's left, that's fine with Mike Rosing too.The crop, hemp, the plant from which marijuana is derived, has been outlawed in the United States since 1937. But in these times of recession talk, Mr. Rosing said with a smile, no source of income should be overlooked.

Pamela Snowhite Davis smokes marijuana. And she doesn't care who knows it."I puff hemp," she says. "If the Department of Justice down to the cop on the street can't relate to that, then I'm sorry."Definitely, the law-enforcement community in Carroll County has had trouble relating to that.Davis, an outspoken advocate for the legalization of marijuana, has been arrested twice on drug charges -- the first for less than an ounce of marijuana in her bedroom, the second for marijuana seeds displayed in her Westminster clothing store.

There's a guy you have to know to get the stuff. Isn't there always? You know a little something about him and vice versa, so everything's cool. In hours the feds will put down the hammer and then things will really get tense. This should be easy. A phone call, a short drive, and you make the hemp connection. No time to waste. You drive into a wind-whipped parking lot, slipping into the dim, greasy lamp light, going through the steps again. No surprises pal, not tonight. Save it for your birthday.

Like a bloodhound, Gira Balistreri is racing through the palatial Whole Foods Market in El Segundo, Calif., sniffing out some of her favorite foods. A new employee at the 65,000-square-foot flagship store, she goes directly to several shelves of hemp shakes and snacks, then trots over to tidy rows of hemp butter and oil, then rushes down an aisle and snaps up a fresh package of hemp tortillas on her way to the hemp bars, hemp bread and hemp bagels. "Hemp," she says excitedly, "is just an awesome seed."

I ate my way through the Natural Products Expo East at the Baltimore Convention Center last week. I probably upped my normal fiber intake by 200 percent as I downed almost every sample that was handed to me while walking the floor. I sipped lactose-free soy milk, spooned down soy yogurt, ate cheese made from raw milk, sampled sausages made from happy hogs, downed an organic hot dog, sampled an eggplant burger, chewed on a hemp bagel and a hemp-powered energy bar, spooned down five kinds of honey made by Mexican bees, enjoyed dark chocolate that didn't have cows' milk, tasted a sauce that looked like it was loaded with tomatoes but actually was made with carrots and beets, sipped organic wines from Maryland, tried a couple of sudsy organic brews from Anheuser-Busch, then tossed down a few Goji berries from Tibet.

ST. PETERSBURG, RussiaThe sign on Sergei Grigoryev's office door says "Narcobaron," or drug baron, over a faint picture of a marijuana leaf. That's his way of weathering the joshing he gets for doing nothing more than showing up for work each day. After all, Grigoryev promotes hemp. The scientist at the Vavilov Institute of Plant Industry in St. Petersburg is quick to draw a distinction between the connotations the word brings to mind - pot, weed, maryjane, hashish, ganja, herb, chronic - and the plant he calls one of the most valuable ever cultivated.

Holding a thin piece of deerskin stretched tightly over a small brown painted coffee can, Alex Genuario concentrated on threading a piece of hemp through the small holes poked in the hide. Standing next to him, his younger brother, Dominic, threaded beads onto his piece of hemp and attached a wild turkey feather as a finishing touch. The Genuario brothers, 11 and 9, were making Native American drums as part of a program at the nature center in Piney Run Park in Sykesville. More than 15 elementary school-aged children participated in the event that was designed to teach them about Native American culture and make use of real animal hide donated to the nature center.
