  Governor Beshear hasn't said what he'll do about the hemp bill passed by the general assembly.

  It would allow Kentucky farmers to be licensed to grow hemp if it's legalized by the federal government.

  The Governor has until Saturday to sign or veto the bill.

  He hasn't said what he'll do.

  Legalized hemp has its critics including state police who say it's hard to distinguish from marijuana.

  Some police worry marijuana growers will use hemp to camouflage pot.
