Hemp Commission to Meet for First Time in a Decade
For the first time in a decade, Kentucky's commission on industrial hemp will hold a meeting. The commission has been dormant since its inception, but Agriculture Commissioner James Comer supports hemp and is reviving the panel.
U.S. Senator Rand Paul is also supporting the commission and his staff will give a presentation on the crop’s potential to help Kentucky farmers.
There will also be a private funding announcement for the commission by Vote Hemp, an advocacy group.
