hemp farmers on the rise and states are listening


Recommended Posts

I believe that it is a superior product to cotton and should be legal. 


Since 1970, however, federal law has classified all cannabis plants as Schedule I substances, alongside drugs like heroin, LSD and a number of deadly synthetic opioids.


Under the new farm bill, hemp would be defined as any part of a marijuana plant with a THC concentration of 0.3 percent or less.

Anything less is just pure ignorance. 


It’s clear that hemp would represent a significant economic opportunity for farmers in Kentucky and across the country. In 2017, the U.S. market for the sale of hemp products was over $800 million and growing at a double-digit pace, as it had been for a number of years, said Steenstra. Although these sorts of goods have been completely legal in the U.S. for years, they’ve historically had to be imported because of the federal ban on domestic cultivation.

Let the market decide.
