Virginia plants seeds for new hemp industry


When people think of hemp, marijuana often comes to mind – because the two plants are varieties of cannabis.

But hemp has a variety of uses, from making textiles and building materials to feeding livestock. The settlers at Jamestown grew hemp. So did George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. In the 1940s, Henry Ford reportedly built a car body of hemp fiber and ran it on hemp oil.

In the 1950s, however, the United States banned hemp because of its association with marijuana. That prohibition has remained in effect – until now.

Batting averages vary among Virginia legislators


As baseball season gets underway, here’s a question worth pondering: Who were the heavy hitters in the 2015 General Assembly?

For a lead-off hitter, your fantasy team might include Del. Scott Garrett, R-Lynchburg: He sponsored seven bills during the recent legislation session – and all of them passed. You can’t bat any better than 1.000.

On deck might be Del. Thomas A. “Tag” Greason, R-Lansdowne. Eleven of his 12 bills passed, for a batting average of 0.917. A fraction behind was Del. Edward T. Scott, R-Culpepper: He batted 0.889, passing eight of his nine bills.

A suburban epidemic

Henrico experiences spike in heroin usage, deaths

Marvelle Hutchinson had been in prison for 5 years. Locked up for heroin possession, he was awaiting release in 2012 when he began hearing strange stories about the girls back home. New inmates were telling him about shifting attitudes towards the drug that had tormented him since he first tried it at age 19.

“It used to be that you could not let no females know you was getting high [on heroin] because that was hard drugs,” said Hutchinson. “You would be considered a junkie.”

But newly incarcerated inmates were telling Hutchinson that the drug had become commonplace. He couldn’t imagine a world in which snorting or shooting heroin was as casual as smoking a cigarette.
