On Tuesday, March 26, the Kentucky General Assembly agreed to final passage of Kentucky Senate Bill 50, which would set up a framework to regulate industrial hemp in Kentucky. Sen. Paul has pledged to seek a waiver from the administration when a regulatory framework is in place. He has also introduced legislation at the federal level that removes restrictions on the production of industrial hemp.

"I commend the Kentucky General Assembly for final passage of Senate Bill 50. I want to thank Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture James Comer, Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Paul Hornback and the members of the Kentucky Industrial Hemp Commission for their leadership and hard work in passing this legislation," Sen. Paul said.

FRANKFORT, KY. — Gov. Steve Beshear wants to talk to law enforcement before deciding whether to sign the hemp bill that passed the Kentucky General Assembly in the final hour of its 2013 session.

“The bill was amended and passed in the last hour of session, and we have not yet had a chance to review it,” spokeswoman Kerri Richardson said Wednesday. “The governor is going to review the bill and talk with law enforcement before making any decision.”

The governor has 10 days to decide whether to veto the bill. Since the legislature adjourned Tuesday, any veto by Beshear could not be overridden.

Take Back Kentucky and Industrial Hemp Commission

We need to personally thank each individual at Take Back Kentucky, the Industrial Hemp Commission, and State Agriculture Commissioner & Department for the passing of industrial hemp legislation. A special thanks to those who wrote, call, or e-mail the state representatives and senators on this special bill. We still need to call Governor Steve Beshear and urge him to sign this bill.

would this begin the third migration, back out of cities

to farming communities, when this becomes ridiculously profitable?

hope so.

sure ain't gonna be moving to Colorado, if they do not overturn their gungrabber bill.

Washington is more gun and 'legal' marijuana friendly, anyhow, of the two states that recently legalized recreational pot use.

always a glimmer of hope in midst of current tyrannical paradigm.
