Hemp Legal?

FirstRead writes, “The federal government currently puts hemp in the same category of illegal drug as heroin, LSD and ecstasy — but Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-KY, joined forces Thursday with a pair of West Coast Democrats — Oregon Sens. Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley — to cosponsor a bill that would allow American farmers to grow hemp without fear of punishment. Also on board is libertarian Rand Paul, McConnell’s fellow Republican Bluegrass State senator.” DEFINITION OF HEMP: “A distinct variety of the Cannabis sativa plant, known as hemp, can be grown to maximize the fibers in the stalk of the plant or to maximize seed production. Hemp has a minimal amount — about 1% –of the psychotropic chemical THC, the chemical that produces marijuana’s high.”
