The Wisconsin Assembly could give final legislative approval as early as tomorrow (Thursday) to a bill to let farmers grow industrial hemp. The Senate unanimously okayed the measure Tuesday, and the Assembly ag panel was taking testimony on it late this (Wednesday) morning. Industrial hemp is used in a number of products — and Wisconsin was a national leader in growing it until the federal government banned hemp in 1970 because it’s an ingredient in marijuana. The state would give permits to growers who pay fees, pass criminal background checks, and provide G-P-S coordinates of the land that’s dedicated to hemp. Meanwhile, the Senate has voted to let kids younger than ten go hunting with mentors — and the bill that was sent to the governor also lets kids and adult mentors carry separate weapons in the woods for the first time.
