Yost hemp bill gets co-patron

The Roanoke Times

Del. Matt Fariss, R-Rustburg, has signed on as chief co-patron of a bill to legalize industrial hemp production in Virginia – a bill filed by New River Valley Del. Joseph Yost.

Fariss, a farmer, said hemp could be an asset for growers searching for new crops to cultivate.

“I think hemp is a very valuable agricultural product for Southside Virginia,” he said. “It doesn’t have any negative impacts, like marijuana. It’s an industrial product with many industrial applications.”
