Thank you for contacting me regarding the use of industrial hemp. I appreciate your taking the time to share your thoughts on this issue with me.
I am aware of efforts to allow for the production of industrial hemp. I believe that the current state of research does indicate promise in the cultivation of industrial hemp, and I will keep your comments in mind as we continue to debate agriculture issues in the Senate.
Again, thank you for taking the time to write. Please continue to inform me of issues that are of importance to you and your community.
