Democratic senator Wyden has added a provision to an upcoming agriculture bill that would legalize industrial hemp in the US. The legalization of industrial hemp is projected to bring double to triple the income that farmers would make vs. the next major cash crop corn.

Unfortunately it's looking like the GOP as usual will shoot it down. What's next from the GOP, perhaps the war on farmers?

The bill’s sponsor, Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), has also called on other Senators to stop adding unrelated amendments, which the Senate spent much of Wednesday doing. If the Senate’s top partisans cannot find an agreeable solution to limiting the bill’s amendments, it is likely to languish and die.
So, the dem who sponsored it, told the dem who sponsored the "last minute" add on....to stop it....

And of course this relates to repubs are trying to stop it.....

Who was trying to stop it?

In a last minute addition to the Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act of 2012, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) has submitted an amendment that would legalize the production of industrial hemp, a potential new bumper crop for U.S. farmers.

I'm not joining the Democratic Party - I do support the legalization of cannabis in all of its uses.

I do not and have no wish to smoke pot - I do not think that the government should tell people what they can't put in their own body.

Then why continue to support the party that chooses to do so?

If the Democrats were not stupid, which they are, they would leave the bill as it is and let the Republicans vote it down because 80% of the farm welfare payments go to RED states where farmers live.
