As with their near beer, Kansas seems like a place that would only eventually legalize low potency cannabis.

This is decades overdue. There is no need to mow down rainforests when we can use this. You would have to smoke a railcar of hemp to even think about catching a buzz.

A quick check of both Wikipedia and he Encyclopedia Brittanica websites indicted that...

Sativa Indica (Marijuana) plants contain anywhere from 2% to 20%THC,

Sativa Sativa (Hemp) contains aprr. 0.3% of THC.

Kansas farmers could grow it, except there's no market to sell it here and no processing facilities in the state. Kansas farmers at best would have to truck it to Colorado, where the market price is very depressed from local hemp production or to the East coast where transportation costs would eat any profit made.
