Illinois lawmakers are Considering Industrial Hemp

Illinois lawmakers are Considering Industrial Hemp

According to The Associated Press Lawmakers in Springfield, Illinois are considering a bill that will allow Illinois farmers to grow industrial hemp.

The (Springfield) State Journal-Register reports that state Sen. Toi Hutchinson is sponsoring the legislation. It has already passed the state Senate and is headed to the House.

Rob Davies, Illinois Farmers Union marketing director, says there is a big misconception that hemp is similar to marijuana. He says it is not a drug and from the farmers’ perspectives it makes sense “to have an alternative commodity” to grow.

Hemptique supports the legalization of industrial hemp in the United States. Check out the rest of the story here
