Sens. McConnell, Paul join forces to legalize hemp
Kentucky Sens. Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul have announced that they will co-sponsor legislation that would allow American farmers to grow hemp legally.
Hemp is a non-drug variety of the cannabis plant — the marijuana plant — used for a range of consumer products, including rope, fabric, paper, soap and food. The bill would remove low-drug content hemp from federal classification as a Schedule I controlled substance.
A man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of his life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.” -- Goethe
