Last week Kentucky’s Senate voted, 31-6, to approve legislation that would legalize hemp in the state. This is after their Senate Committee on Agriculture voted unanimously to put it to a full Senate vote.
Kentucky’s U.S Senators, Republican Minority Leader Mitch McConnel and Rand Paul, have publicly endorsed the measure, while simultaneously working on federal legislation to end hemp prohibition.
Kentucky lawmakers are also consider legislation to legalize medical cannabis.
Now, lawmakers can rest assured that they have the clear majority backing of their constituents.
