Mitch McConnell

U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following comment regarding the future of hemp in Kentucky:

“I continue to work closely with Commissioner Comer, Senator Paul and Congressman Massie on the best federal approach which will aid Kentucky farmers and allow them to harness the economic potential that industrial hemp can provide. Industrial hemp has the potential to provide an economic boost to Kentucky and create jobs, and can be done in a way that does not compromise Kentucky law enforcement marijuana eradication efforts or promote illegal drug use.”

Standing today with legislative, law enforcement, judicial, community and state leaders, Rep. John Tilley (D-Hopkinsville) and others highlighted the mounting successes of House Bill 463, landmark legislation from 2011 that made sweeping reforms to Kentucky’s criminal justice system.

It was not always easy, but we knew we could do better, and today we have tangible proof that we are doing much better.”
