Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill maintains his innocence in the face of sexual misconduct allegations and calls to resign.

Hill spoke to the media Monday for the first time since the allegations went public.

Attorney General Curtis Hill says he won’t resign after the governor and other GOP leaders called on him to step down. Instead, Hill wants a new investigation into allegations he groped four women earlier this year.

He calls the allegations “vicious and false,” and says legislative leaders’ inquiry into his conduct is a “travesty.”

Indiana’s Inspector General will investigate sexual misconduct allegations against Attorney General Curtis Hill.

Lori Torres announced Friday her office will look into the accusations after the governor and legislative leaders requested the inquiry.

CBD Oil: What Is It And Who Can Legally Use It

Jan 2, 2018

A bill proposed for this legislative session would legalize CBD oil for all Hoosiers.  It could also answer questions about what it is and who may use it.

Purdue University botanist Janna Beckerman agrees there is confusion about the substance that is extracted from the cannabis plant.

“When we talk about CBD oil what we’re talking about is an extract, similar to how we get mint oil by distilling it from mint,” says Beckerman.

Indiana To Fight Another Food Production Law

Dec 12, 2017

Indiana is leading 13 states in a lawsuit against Massachusetts over new food regulations. The law requires eggs, pork and veal sold in the Bay State to come from animals raised with room to lie down and turn around without touching an enclosure— it’s the second such lawsuit involving Indiana that’s been filed in the last two weeks.

Indiana Attorney General Curtis Hill says the Massachusetts law— scheduled to go into effect in 2022— will cost farmers and raise consumer prices.

Indiana joins 11 other states in a legal challenge against the state of California over egg production regulations. California passed a law in 2015 requiring all eggs sold there to come from hens raised with room to stand up and fully stretch their wings.

Eggs are a multi-billion dollar industry for Hoosiers and Indiana produces the third most eggs in the country. The state exports about one to four percent of its eggs to California each year.
