Mitch McConnell Looks Like a Narc in New Campaign Footage Featuring Hemp Farm

The right-wing Senate majority leader has become one of hemp's biggest cheerleaders, but that hasn’t stopped McConnell from blocking marijuana reform at every turn.

When you think of hemp, Mitch McConnell wants you to think of him. The notoriously hardline Republican Senate Majority Leader is pushing for re-election in November 2020, and he’s turning to marijuana’s non-intoxicating cousin to help him collect votes.

In a newly-released clip of campaign B-roll footage for use in Republican super PAC commercials, Senator McConnell can be seen standing in the middle of nondescript hemp farm, surrounded by small-scale farmers and big buds of CBD-rich hemp flower. The video was first spotted by the Washington Free Beacon and then highlighted by Tom Angell over at Forbes.
