'Wisconsin just quietly passed a bill that will allow farmers in the state to grow industrial hemp which will inevitably lead to economic growth and a hemp revolution.
On April 2, 2009, the Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2009 was introduced in the United States House of Representatives by Ron Paul. This logical bill’s only purpose was to remove industrial hemp—which cannot get you high—from the Controlled Substances Act so its myriad of uses could be realized by farmers on a national level.
