Today's Weed News For May 13th 2019 #CONNECTICUT

2 months ago


For today's weed news we go to the great Constitution State.

As of last week, it is officially okay to grow and produce hemp in the state of Connecticut!

Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont signed a bill last Thursday legalizing the crop after farmers in the state kept pushing for the right to grow industrial hemp.

Before it landed on the governor's desk, the bill was voted on by both chambers of Connecticut's General Assembly and passed both votes unanimously. Farmers in a state believe that hemp legalization will lead to lots of new opportunities, thanks to this incredible plant's many uses.

"We're absolutely thrilled this has been a priority for governor Lamont. The growing, processing, and all of the products potentially available from hemp has been a focus for many Connecticut farmers. They've been looking forward to having this opportunity. You know, there's been a lot of anticipation about this amongst our Connecticut farmers, and we're interested to see how this is going to move forward in the state," said the Connecticut Farm Bureau Association's Joan Nichols.

It's estimated that one acre of mature hemp can bring in anywhere from $37,000 to $150,000! With numbers like that, it's no wonder that farmers are jumping at the chance to start planting hemp seeds on their land.

I personally and am happy to hear that people are continuing to learn about hemp and a realizing how many different things this plant can be used for. I believe this is only going to continue and that soon, most places will allow hemp farming around the world.

And that's what's up in Connecticut!
