From GovTrack – Summary S;2667 – Hemp Farming Act of 2018

Marijuana remains illegal on a federal level, but should America legalize a non-drug variant with agricultural and industrial uses? Mitch McConnell thinks so despite his strong opposition to legalizing marijuana.

Context

Hemp is a substance made from the same cannabis plant as marijuana, except it can’t get you high. Instead, it’s used to make items including cardboard, carpets, clothes, lotion, paper, rope, and soap.The drug part of marijuana comes from the buds or the leaves, while hemp comes from the stalks or seeds.

Nonetheless, hemp is currently on the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) list of controlled substances, at least in part, since it comes from the cannabis plant. There are some uses of hemp which are legal, but it’s not fully legal as many advocates believe it should be. It has, however, been legal to_import_ hemp products from other countries since 1998.

What the bill does

The Hemp Farming Act would fully legalize hemp. It was introduced in the Senate by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, one of the Senate’s most stringent adversaries of legalized marijuana.

It would also remove most existing restrictions or regulations limiting hemp growers’ access to banking or crop insurance, among other things.

The legislation was introduced by in the Senate by Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) as S. 2667, and in the House by Rep. James Comer (R-KY1) as H.R. 5485.”
