Senate Committee Votes Unanimously to Approve Legal Hemp in Kentucky

Today the Senate Committee on Agriculture in Kentucky voted unanimously on Senate Bill 50, which would legalize industrial hemp in Kentucky.

U.S. Senator Rand Paul, wearing a t-shirt made of hemp, testified at the committee in favor of the bill, stating that if it passed, he’d work with the president on granting a federal waver to allow the production of hemp in Kentucky.

The hearing included both sides of the argument, with the opposition going as far as saying “you can get high from hemp”, and that it would lead to more crime (laughable propaganda).

The bill had a number of high-profile endorsers, including senate minority leader Mitch McConnel.
