San Luis Obispo county supervisors pass a temporary ban on new industrial hemp crops.
Some see the decision as a major setback for local hemp farmers. The vote was four to one to pass an urgency ordinance that places a 45-day moratorium on industrial hemp. That will give the county an opportunity to look at water and other issues related to industrial hemp.
Supervisor Adam Hill voted with supervisors Debbie Arnold, Lynn Compton and John Peschong.
