Just as the State Senate passed its version of the industrial hemp bill, Kentucky’s two U.S. senators have introduced legislation that would lift the ban on the crop across the country.
The Industrial Hemp Farming Act was introduced Thursday in the U.S. Senate and was co-sponsored by Senators Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul in addition to Democratic Senators Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden.
The Bill would remove federal restrictions on the domestic cultivation of industrial hemp. Specifically, it would remove the plant from the Schedule One controlled substance list and would define it as a non-drug as long as it stayed under a determined T-H-C count.
A news release says Kentucky provided 94 percent of the nation’s industrial hemp prior to World War II and the country remains the world’s larges consumer of hemp. Even so, it remains the only major industrialized nation that bans farming the product.
A House version of the bill is also up for consideration in Washington.
