Urge Legislators in Tennessee to Support SB 0279!
SB 0279 is a great bill which specifies that industrial hemp and hemp-derived products are not subject to forfeiture under the forfeiture statute in the Tennessee Criminal Code. This bill is a great example of how grassroots Hemp Supporters can truly have an impact and effectuate change in their state. The bill specifically provides protection for anyone engaged in the transportation of hemp by expressly stating that no person shall be subject to a search by a law enforcement officer based solely upon the detection of the odor of the cannabis plant, including the odor of any emission produced only by the burning or vaporization of the cannabis plant. We believe this is a huge step in the right direction, particularly for actors in the industry engaged the necessary step of transporting hemp and hemp products.
