Herring made the remarks in an op-ed in the Daily Press and in comments to reporters at a Democratic fundraiser in Richmond.

4. If a southern state went for legalization

it would probably be Virginia first. Kentucky and Tennessee would probably follow, since they already have hemp growing there.

5. Yes!

Hoping Dems get a more comfortable margin in the legislature in 2020.
“Get the red out!”

Hadn't yet heard, so thank Judi Lynn. Almost makes me sorry I stopped my Daily DePress subscription...naw, no it doesn't.

Fingers crossed that it'll be legalized soon...everywhere.
