Pa. lawmakers, activists push for industrial hemp

Two Republican state senators plan to unveil legislation that would permit cultivation and processing of industrial hemp in Pennsylvania under the state's Department of Agriculture.

A councilman in Adams County is pushing hemp in an attempt to make an old industry new again.

David "Scotty" Bolton, a McSherrystown Borough councilman, said he thinks legalizing the plant would provide another cash crop for the county's more than 174,000 acres of farmland.
