Federal Judge Halts Indiana’s Ban on Smokable Hemp NC Senate Should Refuse Concurrence Vote S.B. 315
Friday, September 13, 2019 U.S. District Judge Sarah Evan Barker threw out Indiana’s ban on smokable hemp.
Saying it is unconstitutional for states to ban one type of hemp because they can’t easily distinguish it from marijuana.
North Carolina Lawmakers are facing the same situation. The North Carolina Senators will most likely continue to refuse a concurrence vote on the House version of S.B. 315.
The North Carolina Senate should and most likely will continue to refuse a concurrence vote on the House version of S.B. 315.
Rod Kight, a cannabis attorney who represents hemp farmers and hemp businesses, sums it up perfectly .. “Although neither this lawsuit nor the issue of smokable hemp is fully resolved, the court’s issuance of a preliminary injunction in the Indiana case is a key moment in the advancement of sensible hemp policy and an enormous victory for the industry”
As Tyler Russell, business and creditor’s rights attorney with Ward and Smith, stated “for now, our hope is that the North Carolina Senate will continue to refuse a concurrence vote ont he House version of S.B. 315 – and, that the Preliminary Order will chill additional efforts (like those occurring in North Carolina) to classify “smokable hemp” as marijuana or to otherwise ban, restrict, or criminalize possession of the plant.”
