"People's displeasure with Sessions' position on marijuana is misplaced - it's not his job to legalize marijuana or to let states decide, that's Congress' job," Massie said, adding: "I'm not advocating this, but if they were to strictly enforce the [federal] marijuana laws, I think they would be repealed within a year."

"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.
