Dear Lt. Governor, Sherrer

Recently, I received from Minnesota House Representative Phyllis Kahn, copies of the Minnesota House and Senate Bills for Hemp Cultivation. I am enclosing these copies. (State Representative Phyllis Kahn, State Office Building, 100 Constitution Avenue, Saint Paul, Minnesota, 55155-1298

Also enclosed is the “Commercial Hemp” magazine, The Trade Journal For Our Growing Industry. This magazine is printed in Canada where hemp cultivation is in full implementation.

Missouri is passing legislation this year. The House & Senate bills are in states of final revision and debate.

In reference to the Popular Mechanics article I sent you last month regarding Dalmer-Benz in Germany utilizing hemp for manufacturing the bodies of their automobiles. Benz has announced that their next series of automobiles will be the “M-series”.

Lastly I have enclosed an Associated Press release regarding the Frederick Brewing Company in Fredrick, MD, which is now manufacturing hempen ale beer that will be sold in 22 states.

Thank you for allowing me to keep you informed on this vital issue for the enrichment of the Kansas farm economy.
