Agriculture Commissioner James Comer says he is thrilled that Christian County Sheriff Livy Leavell Jr. is on board in supporting the production of industrial hemp in Kentucky during the annual conference of the Kentucky Association of Counties today in Louisville.
Commissioner Comer was quoted as saying that Sheriff Leavell’s support is a big step for the industrial hemp initiative and by having a high-ranking member of Kentucky’s law enforcement community on our side, we can more effectively break down any myths that are still attached to this potential crop.
Industrial hemp was widely grown in Kentucky until the late 19th century and was re-established briefly in the 1940s to make products for the military.
A Congressional Research Service study says hemp is contained in as many as 25,000 products in the global market.
