Alabama House and Senate Pass Industrial Hemp Bill -- Hemp, Inc. Reports

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Apr 14, 2016) - Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP) executives are pleased to announce that Alabama is set to be the next state to legalize industrial hemp. Earlier this week, both the Alabama House and Senate passed an industrial hemp bill that would authorize the Department of Agriculture and Industries to administer an industrial hemp research program. House Bill (HB) 393 and Senate Bill (SB) 347 state an institution of higher learning may apply for a permit or waiver to grow industrial hemp for the manufacture of hemp products. The industrial hemp bill would also revise the definition of marijuana in the controlled substances law to exclude industrial hemp.

"We are seeing overwhelming support from the public and politicians for industrial hemp. With this kind of support, we expect to see all 50 states legalize industrial hemp in the coming months and years ahead," said Craig Perlowin, Secretary of Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP). "Since we have the largest commercial industrial hemp processing facility in America, Hemp, Inc. will be there to support the American farmers in any way we can."

According to the Alabama legislature, the industrial hemp bill shall become effective on the first day of the third month following its passage and approval by the Governor Robert Bentley, or its otherwise becoming law.

Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP) said, "Nothing can stop the hemp revolution. Alabama is set to be the next state to pass legislation to legalize industrial hemp. States are quickly recognizing the benefits of industrial hemp and I believe it will, once again, grace the farmlands of the United States."

Thus far in the United States, 27 states which include California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia, and Virginia have adopted pro hemp laws. The United States remains one of the biggest importers of hemp. Over 30 countries produce industrial hemp, including Australia, Austria, Canada, Chile, China, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Thailand, Turkey and Ukraine.

"Industrial hemp is making its way back. I even said in a previous press release that it seems like every week a state is in the news regarding industrial hemp and passing an industrial hemp bill. Our previous video update clearly illustrates this. And now, Alabama is soon to be yet another state to become part of a new clean, green agricultural and industrial American revolution that, based on the economics and products derived from hemp, is set to be the next billion dollar industry," says Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc.

ABOUT INDUSTRIAL HEMP

When it comes to environmental impact, industrial hemp is a crop that can actually give back to the earth. It takes less water to grow and process, is less polluting from pesticides and can actually help rebuild depleted soil. A hemp crop requires half the water alfalfa uses and can be grown without the heavy use of pesticides. According to a USDA report in 2000, industrial hemp is not very susceptible to widespread disease. Most contagion can be controlled through seed treatment before planting. Additional research has shown that industrial hemp can be used for phytoremediation of polluted environments and significantly detox toxic soil.

Hemp is a durable natural fiber that is grown as a renewable source for raw materials that can be incorporated into thousands of products. It's one of the oldest domesticated crops known to man. Hemp is used as a nutritional food product for humans and pets, building materials, paper, textiles, cordage, organic body care and other nutraceuticals, just to name a few. It has thousands of other known uses.
