CHARLESTON — West Virginia House Democrats are pushing Gov. Jim Justice to add a medical marijuana banking fix to a special session that could take place as early as next week.

Nothing is set in stone for an agenda, but a draft of what the legislators will be addressing include measures on the Department of the Arts and making survivor benefits retroactive among others.

“I’m pleased that we will not be wasting time revisiting the sports betting bill, but frustrated that the most pressing issue, an essential banking fix as recommended by state Treasurer John Perdue for the Medical Cannabis program, is not,” Delegate Mick Bates, D-Raleigh said.

Earlier this week, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a ban on sports wagering, opening the door for states including West Virginia, which passed a sports wagering bill during the last session. Justice previously said there needs to be additional discussion on whether legislation regarding an integrity fee is needed. An integrity fee is paid by casinos to professional sports leagues to help them protect the integrity of

One stock that is persistently overlooked at this point given its history of scandal is Hemp Inc (OTCMKTS:HEMP). But, given the rate of growth projected for the hemp and CBD Oil markets over coming quarters, this might be a bit of a regrettable oversight if things begin to get on track for the company. As is chronically the case for Hemp Inc, the story will come down to politics in the end. And, as a sign of the wind blowing favorably, the company just announced that it is obviously quite in favor of a recent political move in the Show-Me state: it applauds the Missouri Legislature for passing a bill that would legalize hemp.

According to the release, “by a vote of 131 to 6, House Bill 2034 passed Thursday, May 3, after a few amendments were added in the Senate and agreed to by the House members. The bill now goes to Gov. Eric Greitens’ desk. If signed, the bill would become law in August. The bill makes it legal for any person who has received an industrial hemp

Spring Hope, North Carolina, May 08, 2018  — Hemp, Inc. (OTC PINK: HEMP), a global leader in the industrial hemp industry with the largest multipurpose industrial hemp processing facility in the western hemisphere, announced today that the Company was recognized by financial news outlet TheStreet. The article “How to Invest in Cannabis – In Its Many Forms” published on May 7, 2018, follows recent news that Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) announced that he is signing on as a cosponsor of a hemp legalization bill introduced last month by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).

“If you want to invest directly in the production of cannabis, there’s actually a way to do that,” writes TheStreet. “Hemp Inc. (HEMP) has been around since 2008 and seeks to be a one-stop shop for hemp production. Growing it, extracting ingredients from it, fiber processing, even selling products made for the maintenance of hemp. If [the bill legalizing hemp] passes, a company like Hemp Inc. that had been there this whole time working in states with their own laws would probably have an advantage against
