We all got a Tennessee joint in us
A farmer from Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, celebrated 4/20 in the best way he knows how… with a very, very long joint. 45 meters! longer than Boston where a group of enthusiasts rode a joint of more than 30 meters with 1 kilo of grass.
Heath Scott, owner of 7 points of sale Farm and Apothecary, rolled a 150-foot (45m) long joint with three different strains of hemp, which, along with CBD, are legal in Tennessee.
Scott started rolling the joint last Thursday, 3 yards at a time, hoping to reignite the marijuana debate in Tennessee.
The joint was sleeved with a drip irrigation tube to help it stay together and could end up being longer than 150 feet, Scott said Monday.
Scott is an advocate for any cannabis legalization, medical and recreational, in Tennessee that he wanted to raise awareness with the joint.
“It's the beginning of the future, I can feel it. I don't think this is the end. I think this is just the start for us to move forward and go to lawmakers to have a bang and say we're ready, ”Scott explained.
Tennessee is one of six states where no form of marijuana, whether recreational or medicinal, is legal. currently, hemp which is legal in Tennessee does not contain THC. Hemp is grown as a fiber to make fabric ropes and building materials or as a flower that produces cannabidiol.
