KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) --- Pass the State Law pon the left hand side.
Senator Frank Niceley is considering following in Kentucky's footsteps and legalizing industrial hemp as the state's next big cash crop.
Our neighbors to the north became the first in the country to bring back what once was a leading crop for America's farmers.
Citing the economic possibilities Kentucky made the decision after setting up strict guidelines to make sure Hemp's criminal cousin Marijuana is not grown.
Niceley wants to wait and see if Kentucky's gamble pays off, if it does he could introduce legislation next year.
