Farm Bill Update December 2018

In our polarized and paralyzed political system, we are always warning Congress-watchers to tamper expectations of the speed of legislative action.

So, imagine our surprise to report that the Senate just passed the Farm Bill with permanent hemp legalization!  By an overwhelming 87-13 vote.

The bill is now off to the House, where final passage is hopeful before the end of the week.  Or who knows, maybe even sooner?!?
