“As the tobacco industry has changed, some farmers in states like Kentucky have been searching for a new crop that can support their families and grow our agricultural economy,” McConnell said in a speech introducing the bill, as reported by Forbes.
In 2014, the Obama-era Farm Bill established hemp as a plant distinct from its psychoactive cousin marijuana and allowed states to permit hemp farming for non-commercial research purposes.
