Benson Bell, executive director for Consumer and Environmental Protection, left, and Adam Watson, program coordinator, weigh a bag of hemp seed Friday, May 23, 2014 at the Kentucky Department of Agriculture in Frankfort. Hemp seeds that produced a drawn-out legal fight were freed from confinement and delivered Friday to Kentucky's Agriculture Department for experimental plantings, marking a limited comeback for the non-intoxicating cousin of marijuana. The seeds from Italy that drew so much suspicion from federal drug officials were unceremoniously unloaded from a UPS truck and then weighed by state agriculture officials. The shipment featuring 13 seed varieties came in at 286 pounds. (AP Photo/The Courier-Journal, James Crisp) less
