Industrial Hemp Headed To Governator
It looks like a bill to legalize the growing of Industrial Hemp in California is finally headed to the Governor's desk. I get the feeling, after reading the Ukiah Daily Journal's story on this, the Governor might actually sign it. Let's hope so.
I mentioned some time ago that a similar bill a few years ago, sponsored by our very own State Assemblybabe, Virginia Strom- Martin, didn't even make it through the Democrat controlled State Assembly's Agriculture Committee. I wonder what made this one different?
I wanted to mention this a few days ago, when the Times- Standard covered it but, for whatever reason, the T- S didn't link to the story on their web site. They covered some of the back and forth in the legislature on the issue, including some comments by State Senator Tom McClintock (GO McCLINTOCK!), who carried the bill through the senate.
Today's Times- Standard has a local gal who sells hemp clothing's thoughts on Industrial Hemp. You can read her thoughts here.
Anyway, let's hope the Governor signs the bill. It's not going to end the hemp wars in and of itself, but it's a step in the right direction.
My gut feeling is the Governor will sign it.
