PALM BEACH, Florida, May 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

As the latest

Legislation efforts supporting the legalization of some level of hemp and cannabis use continues to pass across the US, the marijuana industry collectively is projected to explode with lucrative opportunities for those companies lucky enough to already
be entrenched in the U.S. and Global marijuana markets. A growing number of states are starting to show signs it may be time to end the detrimental effect of archaic marijuana prohibition laws leading to companies to kick into high gear such as: Hemp, Inc. (OTC: HEMP), Marijuana Company of America, Inc. (OTC: MCOA), PotNetwork Holding, Inc. (OTC: POTN), MyDx, Inc. (OTC: MYDX), Medical Marijuana, Inc. (OTC: MJNA)

With Hemp, Inc.'s (OTC: HEMP) 500 acre Arizona hemp farming infrastructure moving into high gear, the following news could not have come at a better time. We are pleased to report Arizona's House (Committee of the Whole) passed SB1337, amended, last week on 5/8/17 after the Senate passed it on 2/23/17. Proposed by Senator Sonny Borrelli, the bill would legalize the production, processing, sale and distribution of industrial hemp for commercial purposes and be treated as an agricultural crop subject to regulation by the Arizona Department of Agriculture. Senator Borrelli believes hemp would be a "good cash crop" for Arizona farmers since it can be used for a multitude of products ranging from fiber for clothing to oil. Thus, Arizona is "on the verge of authorizing its farmers to start growing hemp" according to one local new source. Read this release in its entirety and more news for hemp at:

This is perfect timing, according to Bruce Perlowin, CEO of Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP). Hemp, Inc.'s 70,000 square-foot multi-purpose industrial hemp decortication facility, in Spring Hope, North Carolina, is set to be fully operational any day now and will be the largest hemp processing plant of its kind in the western hemisphere. "Our type of commercial facility is an essential part of industrial/processing infrastructure necessary for the emerging, large-scale industrial hemp industry in America. Now that we have that in place, we are focusing on building the farming infrastructure all over America. Acquiring a hemp baler in North Carolina, growing hemp clones in Colorado, joint ventures in Kentucky, and establishing the Arizona 'Veteran Village Kins Community' are the ways we have, thus far, implemented the first phase of our massive expansion plan to grow hemp in all legal states," said Perlowin. The Hemp University is the educational infrastructure and Hemp, Inc.'s CO2 Critical Extractor purchase is part of an already existing and rapidly expanding extraction infrastructure in America. 

Perlowin continued, "The legalization of industrial hemp in Arizona would benefit its economy and expand its sources of revenue. Industrial hemp can also improve the agricultural vitality of Arizona. Because of these primary reasons, industrial hemp will continue to increase in demand." He went on to say, "For the last 3 years, I've been planning for the legalization of hemp in Arizona by building a 'Hemp Growing Veteran Village Kins Community' on 500 of our 4,500 acres in Arizona, north of Kingman." The eco-villages would also include organic gardens, natural beehives, a pond, a living fence and other elements. Thus far, there are a total of 6 geodesic domes on Perlowin's Hemp Growing Veteran Village Kins Community in Arizona. One of the five domes has been completed, according to Dwight Jory, Project Manager for the Veteran Village.
