New Mexico lawmakers to mull hemp production bill

The Washington Times
Sen. Cisco McSorley, D-Albuquerque, recently filed legislation aimed at legalizing the selling of hemp and licensing of farmers to grow the crop. The Industrial Hemp Farming Act would establish fees and set up state regulations for the processing of hemp to be distributed.

Sen. Gerald Ortiz y Pino, D-Albuquerque, who has pushed for the legalization of marijuana in New Mexico, said he thinks an industrial hemp bill may have a chance at passing during the legislative session that begins later this month.
