Agriculture officials say they are pleased with newly passed legislation that will allow colleges and universities to grow hemp for research purposes in states where hemp production is allowed by state law.
The measure was an amendment to the farm bill that passed in the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday.
U.S. Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Vanceburg) was one of three co-sponsors of the amendment and has filed a bill that would remove hemp from the federal definition of marijuana.
