Today's Weed News For November 21st 2019 #TRANSPORTINGHEMP

7 months ago


For today's weed news we go to the great state of Idaho.

Thanks to an executive order signed by Idaho Governor Brad Little, transporting hemp through the state of Idaho is now going to be legal, at least for the time being.

"From the start, I have stated I am not opposed to a new crop such as hemp, but that we need to be sure of that production and shipping of industrial hemp is not a front to smuggle illicit drugs into and around Ohio. We expected new federal rules would eventually result in hemp lawfully traveling across state lines... As it turns out the rules were published at a time when the Idaho Legislature could not quickly respond. My executive order is a stopgap measure to address the narrow issue of interstate transportation of hemp until the Idaho legislature develops a permanent regulatory framework around hemp," explained the governor.

In case you haven't noticed, the United States and really the world as a whole, has been experiencing an absolute CBD craze over the last year or two, and since Donald Trump signed the 2018 Farm Bill that legalized hemp for commercial purposes, not everybody has been on the same page as far as how to enforce the new laws, and also how to tell hemp apart from "real weed."

There have apparently been several cases where truckers hauling perfectly legal hemp were stopped, arrested and thrown in jail by cops who thought they had just made the Weed bust of a lifetime. The main issue being that without actually laboratory testing the plants, officers are usually unable to tell hemp apart from true, THC-containing cannabis.

I feel like the governor's temporary order allowing hemp to travel through his state should help reduce such instances of legal hemp crops intercepted by eager cops.

That being said, I absolutely agree with the governor that the end goal should definitely be finding a legal framework that is both clear to understand, as well as practical in its implementation on both the federal and the state levels.

I'm also glad to hear about Governor Little's pro-hemp approach and I feel like Idaho will likely end up benefiting financially from his open-mindedness.

I do wonder how long it's going to take before the federal government and all the states can agree on one fucking simple way to treat cannabis, hemp and everything else in between. But judging from the way it's been, I feel like that shit might take quite some time.

But anyway, for now, that's what's up transporting hemp through Idaho.

That's good news bro, ain't jack shit happening about CBD down under mate, just more raids on crops.


didnt the Capital just decriminalize weed in Australia?


No it depends on which state you are in. If it's the ACT where the federal politicians live it will soon be decriminalised, but for the rest of us plebs it's still an offence. If you get caught with a small amount you will receive a warning the first offence and have to do counselling. But after that you get caught again you will be charged by the fuck wits.
