Future of industrial hemp still unclear in Ky

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- It is still unclear what will happen to the push to legalize industrial hemp in Kentucky.

Members of a House committee sat through two hours of testimony on a bill to regulate it if the crop makes a comeback, but did not vote on it.

The committee chairman is pushing to rewrite the bill to have a university study of hemp.

The bill would allow hemp to be grown in the state if a federal ban is lifted.

It has already passed the Senate.
