A bill that would allow Illinois farmers to grow industrial hemp is heading to the House. It passed out of the Senate last month.

Current state law lets universities with four-year agricultural science programs grow hemp.

The new measure would expand that to include all farmers.

Illinois Farmers Union Marketing Director Rob Davies says a big misconception is that hemp is similar to marijuana. Davies says it's not a drug.
