Lithuania on Thursday legalized growing hemp as of January for the industrial-scale production of textiles, making it the last of the EU’s 27 members to give it the green light. Although hemp is not marijuana, its resemblance to its high-inducing cannabis cousin has kept the plant banned in the United States and elsewhere for decades despite its many uses for textiles, food, cosmetics and other purposes. Lawmakers in Vilnius voted 66 in favor to 16 against, while 22 abstained.
