Grothman Joins Industrialized Hemp Co Sponsors

Congressman Glenn Grothman recently joined nine other Republicans and fifteen Democrats as a co-sponsor of an Industrial Hemp Farming Act. The bill amends The Controlled Substances Act to exclude industrial hemp from the definition of marijuana. Industrial hemp contains less than 1 percent of the narcotic substance in marijuana and was legal in the U.S. until 1937. It’s used to create a variety of products, including construction materials, biofuel, rope, plastic composites and more. Currently, the U.S. is the only major industrialized country that cannot legally grow hemp.
