Industrial Hemp Back On The Table
Looks like another effort to legalize the growing of Cannabis Indica(?), better known as Industrial Hemp, is back in the works again. According to the Contra Costa Times, this looks like an even more bipartisan effort than the last one- that one having been vetoed by the Governator.
Looks like our our very own assemblybabe, Patty Berg, co- authored the bill. Good for her. And, once again, past gubernatorial candidate, Tom McClintock has entered the fray on the pro- hemp side.
If someone can get the Governator to dump his "I'm only protecting potential hemp growers by vetoing this bill" attitude, this bill should make it. He's the only one that stopped it from passing last time.
I'm wondering just who the behind the scenes interests are that are opposed to legalization of Industrial Hemp?
