There isn't much time left to get a vote on Industrial Hemp legislation (SB50). Greg Stumbo has adamantly refused to give this bill a hearing, even though it has huge support from the people of Kentucky.

This bill passed unanimously through the Senate Agriculture Committee and passed the full Senate with only 6 nays.

This bill passed the House Agriculture Committee almost unanimously (there was one no vote, from Tommy Turner.)

And this bill is supported by the people, and their representatives all over the state. It's endorsed by the KY Chamber of Commerce, Fiscal Courts across the Commonwealth, the KY Judge Executives Association, and numerous other industries, government agencies, and individuals.

But one man, from Floyd County, is saying that he wants to stand in the way of the massive wave of public support for this crop! He refuses to let this bill come to a vote....

The only thing that can possibly change Greg Stumbo's mind is hearing from his constituents...

The only way we can get a vote on this bill is if the people of Prestonsburg, Martin, Allen, and all the other cities in Floyd County call the Legislative Hotline and leave messages for Greg Stumbo TONIGHT.

The number to call is 800-372-7181 and leaving a message is super simple and only takes a minute.

The message line is open until 11PM Eastern Time, and the nice ladies at the LRC will take your information, ask you who to leave a message for (Stumbo), and then she will take down your message.

The message is "Let Senate Bill 50 get a vote on the House floor. Time is running out!"

Or some variation of that.

People all over the state have been calling their legislators and even leaving messages for Stumbo. But what it will take, at the eleventh hour, is messages from HIS CONSTITUENTS.

If you want to support the hemp movement, and allow our farmers access to a new cash crop, call the Legislative Hotline TONIGHT at 800-372-7181 and leave a message for Greg Stumbo. Ask him to give Senate Bill 50 a vote on the House floor TOMORROW!

My feeling is Gumbo or whatever his name is, is afraid of this young man name Comer. He won't allow this man to get any credit for the work he is doing is my guess. Gumbo seems like he has his hands around the neck of those that voted for him. Too bad, I could use some extra money to pay my bills.

Just pass the bill. It is for medicinal purposes anyway. It's not like everyone will grow it or smoke it. And its not like the crime rate could be any higher. It would slow people down and help them make rational desicions. They could be pain free and more willing to help others!
