Washington State Lawmakers Attempt To Legalize Industrial Hemp.Submitted by couture.t on Thu, 02/14/2013 - 03:12
Rep. Matthew Shea hits another homerun with HB 1888 regarding the legalization of Industrial Hemp. This bill should have no reason to not have bi partisan support, lets pass this thing by next week. Industrial hemp is used in a plethora of different products from shirts to food. You cant get high from hemp unless you smoked something the size of a phone pole. Recently, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul wore his hemp made button up shirt to the Kentucky legislature to testify on their hemp legalization bill. Currently we import most hemp products from Canada where it is legal. Hemp is easy to grow and produce and it is a great product. Lets pass this bill, let farmers grow hemp so they can create thousands of jobs in Washington State and lead the Nation in hemp exports. I applaud Rep. Shea and his co-sponsors for this common sense bill and I whole heartedly support it! - Travis Couture (R) candidate for State Senate.
