Just thought it needed it's own post...
It's a progressive first step.

Congress just voted to legalize hemp
"The bill won’t legalize marijuana for recreational or medical uses, but allows non-psychoactive forms of cannabis."


More importantly!
McConnell's year-end wish: Getting Congress to legalize hemp
"Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has guaranteed that his proposal to make hemp a legal agricultural commodity, removing it from the federal list of controlled substances, will be part of the final farm bill, a crucial measure for rural America and Kentucky, where the Republican senator faces re-election in 2020. He places it on a par with federal spending bills as action Congress must take before the end of the year."

It's a little unnerving that medical use was not what kicked the door down. Keep up the pressure!
