Gov. Jerry Brown recently signed Senate Bill 566. It will allow California farmers to cultivate industrial hemp and to sell it to manufacturers, who will make it into a myriad of products. With this passage of SB 566, it is only a matter of time before the feds give the cultivation of industrial hemp the green light.
Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner James Comer today said he will send a letter co-signed by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Bowling Green, to the Department of Justice informing the department that Kentucky plans on moving forward with the regulation and cultivation of hemp.
