WASHINGTON, D.C. — With hemp legalized as part of a new Farm Bill, Southern Illinois Congressman Mike Bost says it will be important to make sure law enforcement across the nation realizes the difference between hemp and cannabis.

Bost notes he is still not in favor of legalization of cannabis for recreational purposes, but recognizes there may be medical benefits, especially for veterans suffering from PTSD.
