House Committee Votes To Legalize Hemp


A Rhode Island House committee is giving the go ahead to legalize hemp in the state.  The House Health, Education and Welfare Committee voted yesterday to legalize the product.  Police have expressed concerns about the bill because it legalizes a cannabis based industry.  However, supports say hemp has all kinds of industrial uses, and the bill would create stronger controls than are currently imposed on the state medical marijuana program.
