KY Hemp Supporters Praise Revised Farm Bill

A smaller, scaled-down version of the farm bill has passed the US House.

This is weeks after another version of the farm bill failed.

The latest bill doesn’t address possible cuts to the food stamp program.

It will be dealt with separately.

Hemp supporters in Kentucky are cheering the bill’s provision allowing university research on industrial hemp.

Meanwhile industrial hemp production itself is still banned by federal law.
