Spring Hope, North Carolina, Feb. 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP), a global leader in the industrial hemp industry with the largest hemp mill in the western hemisphere, announced today that the Company applauds the Alaska House of Representatives for unanimously passing Senate Bill 6 Monday, legalizing industrial hemp and establishing a pilot program for its growth and production. The bill was passed with a vote of 36-0.

SB-6 is “an Act relating to the regulation and production of industrial hemp; relating to industrial hemp pilot programs; providing that industrial hemp is not included in the definition of ‘marijuana’; providing that cannabidiol oil is not included in the definition of ‘hashish oil’; clarifying that adding industrial hemp to food does not create an adulterated food product; and providing for an effective date,” according to Alaska State Legislation’s website.
