Pogge to Champion Industrial Hemp, Voter Registration Law in Richmond

Del. Brenda Pogge (R-96) was going to carry a bill to the General Assembly that would legalize hemp for industrial purposes, but when she learned a colleague in the House of Delegates was already working on such a bill, she decided to join his effort.

“I think it’s a wonderful opportunity to open up the farmlands of Virginia that are being hurt now,” she said, noting declining tobacco production across the state. “This is a crop that has so much potential. It can be made into so many different things.”
