Kansas cannabis bill would set up hemp trials

Share this:

A broad bill addressing cannabis which has passed the State House of Representatives would set up trials for growing and processing industrial hemp. The hemp clause was inserted as an amendment  at the request of Rep. Willie Dove, R-Bonner Springs, to include provisions clearing a hurdle for research at state universities in Kansas on the potential of industrial hemp as a crop. The Kansas Department of Agriculture would develop rules for studies looking into required soils, seed selection, growing conditions and harvest methods. The measure would also legalize distribution of marijuana oil for treatment of chronic seizures, and reduce sentences for first and second convictions for marijuana possession.
