This needs more attention. I've been hearing things about this for the past two days and now the Yemen Resolution has been attached to it. That means Trump is much more likely to veto. I still need to look into this bill for the other things it includes. One thing it says it does is legalize industrial hemp! Amazing.

Unfortunatly for those who've been working on this bill, Kashoggi, Saudi Arabia, and Yemen have now been latched on to the whole thing. I still don't know if I consider this a good bill in general, as I still have to read it for myself. This bill seems to be a bigger deal than any amount of attention it is receiving.

So the federal government just took it upon itself to tell you what you can or cannot eat. What's next? Kosher laws? Halal laws? Pork is known to carry more disease in general... you know it's all about safety these days. "Baby on board"  :P Bye bye bacon and Americana.
