Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2013
Number of Co-Sponsors
Liberty for All's PositionThis bill preserves the autonomy of the states to determine whether or not the growth and cultivation of industrial hemp would be permitted within their borders while removing federal impediments to industrial hemp growth and cultivation in those states. Industrial hemp is a lucrative and viable economic crop that would provide jobs and income, especially in rural areas in need of the economic boost it could provide. Liberty For All supports free-markets, the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, and the right of states to determine the legal status of industrial hemp growth and cultivation for themselves.
Current StatusThis bill was assigned to a congressional committee on February 6, 2013, which will consider it before possibly sending it on to the House or Senate as a whole.
