Sonoma County leaders are saying no to hemp cultivation. County supervisors approved an immediate ban yesterday on the cultivation of hemp. The plant is very similar to cannabis but it lacks the high concentration of THC that is responsible for a high. The vote comes just weeks before hemp cultivation will be allowed in California. County leaders approved the temporary ban in order to better regulate the crop locally.
