The US House and Senate have now both passed the Hemp Bill of 2018 and it now awaits signing by Trump to become law. The Hemp Farming Act of 2018 will remove hemp (defined as cannabis with less than 0.3% THC) from the Schedule 1 controlled substances list and make it an ordinary agricultural commodity. Trump is expected to sign the bill into law.

One giant step for Cannabis...

That's awesome! Even if it does nothing directly for the legalization of strains of cannabis that contain higher than .3% THC, it will be a boon to farmers in this country. And, perhaps, to other industries such as textiles and such. We as a nation import a significant amount of hemp and hemp-based products, yet we have been prohibited from growing it.

I never understood the real reasoning for such a prohibition in the first place. But then again, I never envisioned myself stumbling upon a vast field of tall, branchless, closely-spaced, male plants and thought, "Nice, someone is going to get high from that."
