“The Federal Government provides State Funding through the Edward Byrne Grant. These funds are sent to state and local law enforcement agencies to improve the criminal justice system, with emphasis on violent crime and serious offenders, and to enforce state and local laws that establish offenses similar to those in the federal Controlled Substance Act.”
Local law enforcement and district attorneys, prosecutors and the SBI are unable to arrest Hemp users. They are complaining that they can’t make as many Marijuana arrests as previous years. Because of this these agencies are unable to apply for as much Edward Byrne Grant Federal Funds as they have in the past.
More importantly, it states directly in Donald Trump’s 2018 Farm Bill that NO STATE SHALL PROHIBIT THE TRANSPORTATION OR SHIPMENT OF HEMP
