Update: Industrial Hemp Cultivation Is Finally Legal In North Carolina

0

October 31 has finally come and the Fat Lady has begun to sing – belching out a loud and proud ditty for a lot of soon-to-be hemp farmers in North Carolina. Thanks to Gov. Pat McCrory’s long ignored veto stamp, the hemp bill left behind on his desk when the N.C. General Assembly headed off for vacation last month … just became law.

While some politicians will hear the Fat Lady’s song and call hemp’s freedom in North Carolina a hateful noise, even though they love the idea of a new cash crop. The fact of the matter remains; the campaign to legalize hemp in North Carolina is effectively over … and HEMP WON!

Thanks to either the Gov.’s apathy or an epiphany, the passage of North Carolina’s industrial hemp legislation will put them in a rather exclusive club. Joining the other 13 states that have already established a commercial industrial hemp program, and seven that have passed laws establishing hemp programs limited to academic and agricultural research.

Born in Long Beach, raised on the central coast: I surf, dab, burn, and blog – though not necessarily in that order. I'm a husband, a father and a lifelong consumer of connoisseur grade weed. I don't drink alcohol or consume any other "drugs." I consider myself to be living proof that weed is not a gateway drug. If it were, I'd be in some serious trouble. Instead, as a 50-year-old ex-realtor that has been smoking weed for nearly 80% of my life (just did the math) ... I can only say, marijuana is safer than prescription pills or alcohol could ever hope to be for calming what stirs the savage beast.
