The Evening Sun
On Wednesday, Dec. 18, 2014, New York became the 19th state in the U.S. to make the move toward growing industrial hemp.

The bill was introduced by Assemblywoman Donna Lupardo (D – Endwell) and Senator Tom O'Mara (R – Big Flats) and develops an agricultural pilot program to begin research on the multipurpose crop. It passed through both houses of the State Legislature last spring.
