10. I bet it will always be possible to breed the THC back in...
For one thing, plants seem to share genes pretty easily. I'd bet a donut that a THC-free hemp would happily crossbreed with the original THC version. Or share the genes some other way for that matter.

As for the evil-Monsanto-overlords angle, you are sadly right. I've been thinking that GMOs for agriculture should be yet another thing provided by public sector, not private. Create the GMOs, but then fucking share them, so humans can actually benefit from them instead of becoming enslaved to commercial gene chop-shops.
