Hemp Farming Bill Passes California Assembly

SACREMENTO, Calif., Jan. 26 /U.S. Newswire/ -- California business leaders and farmers are celebrating today's passage of AB 1147, which clarifies that the cultivation of industrial hemp is legal on the condition it contains no more than three tenths of one percent tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). AB 1147 passed with a clear majority of 44 votes to 32 against and now goes to the Senate for consideration. Final passage of AB 1147 could revitalize commercial industrial hemp farming, which occurred in the state until shortly after World War II.
