WASHINGTON - New developments in Kentucky's efforts to legalize the growing of hemp.

Agriculture Commissioner James Comer will meet with White House officials, representatives of federal agencies and others in an attempt to remove remaining roadblocks keeping the state from growing the plant.

Last week, Kentucky lawmakers signed a letter asking the Drug Enforcement Administration for clarification of regulations regarding industrial hemp.
