Nebraska lawmakers voted this week 39-2 in favor of legalizing Industrial Hemp Farming for Research purposes. Lawmakers said it was about time they jumped on board with the Hemp Movement sweeping across the United States.
States around the US are rushing to line up for the massive potential revenue predicted to come in once this amazingly resourceful plant is legalized again. This year brings the total number of known uses for the Hemp Plant to over 50,000 and counting. Hemp alone has the potential to take over the World with its Earth-Friendly products and Biodegradable Plastics, Biodiesel Fuels, Biomass for Fuel, and Super Food properties.
