An amendment to the farm bill may allow for industrial hemp production, according to an article by KY Forward available here.

  In the House version of the bill, H.R. 2642, could make industrial hemp production legal.  Kentucky Congressman, Thomas Massie (R-KY) introduced the amendment along with Reps. Jared Polis (D-CO), and Earl Blumenauer (D-OR).  Massie said he feels confident the amendment will survive the farm bill negotiations between the House and Senate.
 
  In addition, U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said he recently asked the U.S. Attorney General’s office to review the classification.

  Woven Earth, as a user of industrial hemp, applauds this recommendation and hope Congress will act on it.  As a small company, we're excited to be able to one day source our hemp domestically.
