Hemp Legalization Measure Unanimously Passed by Tennessee Senate

In a unanimous vote, Tennessee’s Senate has voted to pass House Bill 2445, a measure to legalize hemp. The proposal has already passed the full18-hemp House of Representatives, and now heads to the governor for consideration.

Under the proposed law, those who become licensed with the state’s Department of Agriculture would be legally allowed to cultivate and sell industrial hemp. The bill is sponsored by Representative Jeremy Faison and Senator Frank Nicely.

If signed into law by Governor Bill Haslam (or allowed to become law without his signature), farmers could begin cultivating legal hemp by the beginning of next year.

  1. I definitely think they should legalize marijuana especially for medical. There is so much good that can come out of its use and it can definitely help people with health problems.
