Comments

"Pursuant to the U.S. Constitution, decisions regarding the regulation of cannabis are properly left to state governments. In addition, the majority of Americans support allowing the use of medical cannabis. I fully support House Bill 166, and have co-sponsored bills in Congress that would prevent the federal prosecution of any person who acts in compliance with state laws relating to cannabis for medical or other purposes."

"Industrial hemp is a sustainable crop and could be a great economic opportunity for Kentucky farmers," said Rep. Massie. "I'm optimistic that we can get the Industrial Hemp Farming Act to the President's desk this Congress. In 2014, for the first time in over half a century, hemp was grown and harvested in Kentucky under the pilot programs allowed by the Polis-Massie-Blumenauer amendment to the 2014 Farm Bill. I look forward to working with Congressman Comer to build on that momentum to give our nation's farmers and manufacturers more opportunities to compete and succeed in the global economy. I am proud to be an original co-sponsor of this bill introduced by Congressman Comer, who was instrumental in bringing the hemp industry to Kentucky as Agricultural Commissioner," Massie added.
