the new proposed law linked above is for smokeable hemp flowers and CBD, not THC. smokeable flowers are one of the more profitable crops and NC would be a great fit for hemp production.

The comment quoted was about making marijuana legal, which is also the topic of this thread. The next comment was about moving legislation toward legal marijuana.

That was the context of my comments.

All I'm saying is that it's clear they're trying to move backwards on legalization because they r dum.

^I kinda think conservatives didn’t expect flower to just be hanging on the kiosk at the gas station for sale after this industrial hemp thing, like they imagined big factories turning hemp into fiber, etc.

I can only imagine the phone calls Rep. Joe Bob-R from Lickspittle county gets after Henrietta comes across a fat bag of CBD flower while buying her Fritos from the stop’n’go.

On another note, I learned that, while quite a few farmers want to grow pure industrial hemp outdoors in NC, it can problematic. Right before harvest you have to send flower off to have the THC in the plant tested. If there is anything above a trace amount (like 0.3% thc) they start destroying your crop. While hemp varieties exist that are naturally very low in THC, apparently drought, floods, heatwaves, or any number of stressors can actually trigger hemp to start producing THC (even if just a small amount, you could lose the whole crop). So it’s a risk to grow it in an un-controlled environment.

You’ve got to manage the inputs closely to produce blow-your mind weed, but you also have to control the inputs closely to produce 0.3% THC weed.

Quote :
" The problem is that the smokable flower looks and smells like marijuana, and police chiefs, sheriffs and prosecutors around the state have said that, if the legislature keeps smokable hemp legal, marijuana might as well be legal as well.

Law enforcement isn't just worried about it being harder to enforce marijuana laws but about losing probable cause for searches based on the smell of marijuana smoke, or when a drug dog keys in on a vehicle.

"If this bill passes without the ban, we will put 800 of our law enforcement dogs and their handlers out of business," Dixon said.

An official with the State Bureau of Investigation told lawmakers that, while drug officers could be reassigned, K-9s trained to alert for the smell of marijuana would have to be retired. "You can't unteach them," she said."


It'll put decent, hard-working dogs out of a job!!!

Seriously though, the State has 800 dogs whose only job is to sniff-out marijuana?

And why does this require criminalizing an otherwise harmless substance?
