TEXAS- July 9, 2019
No, we won’t shut up, that’s the whole point we are here; to be loud as hell and tell it like it is.
If you get stopped by police and they find your “flower” tell them it’s hemp and they need to test it!
So, with the new hemp law here in Texas, there are District Attorneys coming out saying they will no longer prosecute people for small amounts of cannabis because they can’t tell the difference between hemp and cannabis.
Officials say the problem will likely cost millions of dollars and take months to fix and has prompted some authorities around the state to at least temporarily stop prosecuting misdemeanor marijuana cases.
After the 2018 federal Farm Bill made hemp legal in the U.S., many states, including Texas, passed legislation allowing farmers to get into the hemp-growing business. Hemp, which contains only traces of the THC chemical compound that allows cannabis users to get high.
Texas’ new law, which follows guidelines set forth in the Farm Bill, defines a cannabis plant as hemp if it has less than 0.3% of THC and says it is cannabis if it has more than 0.3%. Authorities in Texas previously needed to show only that TCH was present, not an exact percentage of the chemical, to prove it was cannabis.
Most crime labs across Texas don’t have the equipment, the testing methods, the capacity or the accreditation to determine the percentage of THC in a sample, said Peter Stout, president of the Houston Forensic Science Center, which provides lab testing for Houston police and other local agencies.
You know what would clear up all of this confusion? WHOLE PLANT ACCESS!
With all of that being said, if you get stopped by police and they find your “flower” tell them it’s hemp and they need to test it! Then do what the Pot Brothers At Law recommend.
