(WHAS 11)—There’s more support coming for the legalization of hemp in Kentucky.

Congressman Thomas Massie said he has the support to make it happen.

Supporters said industrial hemp would be a positive development for local farmers and the economy.

The bill would regulate production but the federal government would still need to lift the current ban.

Hemp and marijuana are the same species but are different genetically.
