Hemp is already one of the fastest growing industries in the country. That despite it being on the list of controlled substances. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he wants to change that and will be talking to Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “It looks like it, it smells like it,” Bruce Perlowin, the CEO of HEMP Inc. said. But it’s not marijuana, its hemp. While hemp and marijuana are the same species, hemp has a negligible amount of THC, meaning it won’t get you high.
