Kentucky Hemp Commission

KY Department of Agriculture

The second meeting of the state’s Industrial Hemp Commission will soon begin sorting through the details of its efforts to bring legalized hemp to Kentucky.

The commission will work on the details of a new legislative bill proposal, such what the bill will include and which legislators will sponsor it during the 2013 session, said the chairman, Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner James Comer.

For the first time in a decade, Kentucky's commission on industrial hemp will hold a meeting.

The commission has been dormant since its inception, but Agriculture Commissioner James Comer supports hemp and is reviving the panel.
