Sen. Paul Supports Efforts to Move Forward with Production of Industrial Hemp

Sep 4, 2013

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In response to the Justice Department's recent decision not to challenge state laws in Colorado and Washington that allow marijuana use, Sen. Paul issued the following statement:

 "I support Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner James Comer in his efforts to move forward with the production of industrial hemp in the Commonwealth. This fight has always been about jobs and providing another opportunity for Kentucky's farmers, and I expect the Obama Administration to treat all states equally in this process. I will continue to fight at the federal level to enact legislation to secure this new industry for Kentucky."
