Senator Nicely of Tennessee plans a Hemp Bill

Next session in Tenneessee state legislative is going to be interesting.  This is due to the fact that two state Senators have decided the time is right to join the fight against prohibition and let Tennessee farmers take advantage of the money-making crop called Industrial Hemp.

A knoxville paper is reporting that Senator Frank Nicely of Strawberry  plains and Andy Holt of Dresden are sponsoring the Hemp bill for next year's legislative session.  They have been inspired by recent events in Kentucky.  Both state senators are republican, but in many states there are democrats that also support Hemp farming like in the state of Missouri.

Hemp sales in 2012 reached 500 million in America.  Canada is the number one provider for Hemp raw material for American products.  The worlds number one exporter is China.
