“Victory for Hemp” at Rock House Brewing in Lexington featured live music, hemp vendors, food and hemp brews
On Saturday, January 12th, Kentucky Hempsters hosted “Victory for Hemp” to celebrate the end of federal hemp prohibition at Rock House Brewing in Lexington, Kentucky. Guests enjoyed live music, hemp vendors, raffles, food, and Rock House brews including Uncle John’s Hemp Brown Ale made with Kentucky hemp seeds.
Hemp was made federally legal with the passing of the 2018 Farm Bill in December. A provision, secured in the bill by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), removed hemp from the list of controlled substances and legalized commercial production nationwide.
