Earlier this month, buried deep inside the bloated Farm Bill that passed the House thanks to GOP leadership, was a tiny seed of good news. Many seeds, in fact. This Farm Bill amendment, co-sponsored by Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO), Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) and Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR), "is meant to ensure that colleges and universities are able to grow and cultivate industrial hemp for research purposes in states where industrial hemp cultivation is already legal." As Baylen Linnekin reports, it's the latest good news in the movement to legalize hemp for sale.
