Virginia lawmakers are making some solid progress, especially in the governors office.
Our contact in the governors office has supplied us with new details and updates with industrial hemp in Virginia. Over the last month, there have been multiple meetings between the Virginia governors office, Virginia Farm Bureau, Virginia Tech, Virginia State College and others to draft white papers and discuss potential hurdles. The draft outcome in the form of a white paper was sent to us for review. Very well written and extremely detailed and well supported.
We submitted feedback from the landowner and farmers perspective for inclusion into the discussions. There is still a long way to go but this is some good progress!
