Rhode Island Embraces Industrial Hemp

The walls of cannabis prohibition are collapsing on the west coast.  In the east we still applaud every new crack in that edifice of lies.  Rhode Island is welcoming back a crop grown by her original colonists — hemp.  Here’s more:

House and Senate lawmakers have approved legislation, H8232, to establish rules for the commercial, licensed cultivation of hemp in the state.

The legislation creates the “Hemp Growth Act” to treat hemp as an agricultural product that may be legally produced, possessed, distributed and commercially traded. The Department of Business Regulation will be responsible for establishing rules and regulations for the licensing and regulation of hemp growers and processors.

The Department is also authorized to certify any higher educational institution in Rhode Island to grow or handle or assist in growing or handling industrial hemp for the purpose of agricultural or academic research.
