Arrow RON PAUL Statement Introducing HR 1866, Industrial Hemp Farming Act April/2/2009

Statement of Congressman Ron Paul

United States House of Representatives



*** Statement Introducing HR 1866, Industrial Hemp Farming Act ***

April 2, 2009

Madam Speaker, I rise to introduce the Industrial Hemp Farming Act. The Industrial Hemp Farming Act requires the federal government to respect state laws allowing the growing of industrial hemp.

Eight States--Hawaii, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Montana, North Dakota, Vermont, and West Virginia--allow industrial hemp production or research in accord with state laws. However, federal law is standing in the way of farmers in these states growing what may be a very profitable crop. Because of current federal law, all hemp included in products sold in the United States must be imported instead of being grown by American farmers.
