To Hemp with Mitch McConnell

As another Lame Cherry exclusive in matter anti matter.

I was stunned today when I discovered the United States Government actually doing something which makes sense and that is legalizing Hemp production AGAIN in America.

See all American hemp for the past generations due to another stupid law, like the gun control act of that era in the 1930's has come out of Canada. For those who have not read this blog's posts on growing hemp on American farms  and ranches again, the reality is Hemp is a wonderful crop from oil, to fiber for rope,  and it is a crop for biofuel production.
Hemp will grow huge crops on marginal lands. This means  that it will not compete with cereal grains, but it is a crop which will expand American agriculture.

The Hemp Farming Act of 2018 would legalize hemp, removing it from the federal list of controlled substances and allowing it to be sold as an agricultural commodity, according to WKYT.
“Hemp has played a foundational role in Kentucky’s agriculture heritage, and I believe that it can be an important part of our future,” McConnell said in a statement.
If approved, the act would allow states to control their own hemp regulations by removing federal restrictions. WKYT also reported it would give hemp researchers the ability to apply for grants through the Department of Agriculture.
McConnell announced the bill with Republican Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles. The bill is being co-sponsored by Sens. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) and Rand Paul(R-Ky.)

I am not a fool in believing Mitch McConnell  is doing anything for America, as this probably has something to do with arresting the dope trade from Obama's dopeheads again in marijuana, as one can hide the  high octane stuff among the fiber product, but of that I could care less, as  this is a good legalization of a crop which should never have been made illegal. Hemp actually grows wild  and is no more narcotic than your poppy flowers in the garden are opium producers like in Afghanistan.

As Mr. President seems focused on returning the dope trade to the bankers, I believe that he would indeed sign this  bill into law.

George Washington grew hemp as it was vital to the American economy in hemp produced ropes in a renewable resource.
It is a perfect substitute for Russian alfalfa in it is an acceptable livestock feed which grows 5 times taller than alfalfa.

Hemp is the not-so-secret ingredient in farmer's cow feed ...

The high protein mixture, which contains 34 percent protein and essential fatty acids, has made his cattle healthier, happier and heftier, according to Wise.

This is though what I meant in some good will come in this, but it is not going to be for us. It will be something which will benefit the elite and you will just not be arrested or fined again for some police state monopoly again.

Will wonders never cease? Yes they will and have, but for some criminal reason for white collar money launders, rural Americans are going to get a benefit for once with hemp being allowed to be grown in America again.
