Pennsylvania Senate Passes Industrial Hemp Bill - Hemp, Inc. Reports

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Mar 17, 2016) -  Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP) executives are pleased to announce that members of the Pennsylvania Senate just voted 49-0, a unanimous vote, in favor of industrial hemp. Senate Bill 50, Pennsylvania's industrial hemp bill, will provide for an industrial hemp cultivation pilot program in the Commonwealth through the establishment of an Industrial Hemp Licensing Board within Pennsylvania's Department of Agriculture. Under the bill, Pennsylvania universities can legally conduct industrial hemp agricultural pilot programs for research purposes under the guidelines issued by the federal government. With the unanimous vote, the industrial hemp bill now heads to the House for consideration.

"The fact that the vote was 49-0 shows overwhelming support from farmers, the public and politicians for industrial hemp. With this kind of bipartisan and overall support, we expect to see all 50 states legalize hemp in the coming months and years ahead," said Craig Perlowin, Secretary of Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP). "And as that happens, Hemp, Inc. will be there to support the American farmers in any way we can."

Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP) said, "With Pennsylvania House of Representatives passing legislation to legalize medical marijuana yesterday and the Pennsylvania Senate unanimously passing the industrial hemp bill, it appears to me that the entire eastern United States is going green. The founding fathers that once gathered in Philadelphia for various historical U.S. events can now stop turning in their graves from one of their favorite crops, industrial hemp, going amiss by the federal government. Industrial hemp 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 legalizing industrial hemp and passing an industrial hemp bill. Our current video update clearly illustrates this. And now, Pennsylvania 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.

In other recent news, KNUC.org reported, "Colorado's fledgling hemp industry just got one step closer to turning some of the state's amber waves of grain into fields of emerald green." Colorado state agriculture officials, Colorado State University scientists and the Colorado Seed Growers Association are set to launch America's first certified industrial hemp seed program.

ABOUT INDUSTRIAL HEMP

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. A hemp crop requires half the water alfalfa uses and can be grown without the heavy use of pesticides.

Farmers worldwide grow hemp commercially for fiber, seed, and oil for use in a variety of industrial and consumer products. The United States is the only developed nation that fails to cultivate industrial hemp as an economic crop on a large scale, according to the Congressional Resource Service. However, with rapidly changing laws and more states gravitating towards industrial hemp and passing an industrial hemp bill, that could change. Currently, the majority of hemp sold in the United States is imported from China and Canada, the world's largest exporters of the industrial hemp crop.
