Last week congress passed the 2018 Farm Bill which for some reason didn’t receive much hype and fanfare. Instead there was a yawn and a nod. But what most informed people don’t know about is one little provision in the bill which is monumental. The feds legalized industrial HEMP; the part of the marijuana plant that doesn’t get you high but has multiple commercial and medical uses. This is a Big deal. Now hemp’s a regular crop instead of a Schedule I drug, it gives a shot of adrenaline to a small farming industry, farmers can now apply for bank loans to grow the crop, and the US is one step closer to legalizing and decriminalizing recreational marijuana. The potential amount of profits is tremendous and hard to ignore. VillageRuckus’ crystal ball says 2022. The year the feds pass another bill where one can legally puff puff pass the brown stuff, with no worries of the men and women in blue.
