30 Oct Read the USDA’s Interim Final Rules on Growing Hemp Here
The 2018 Farm Bill put the job of establishing a regulatory framework for hemp production in the US. In order to do that the USDA has established the US Domestic Hemp Production Program and is developing the rules as we speak. These rules would allow states and Indian Tribes to submit plans to legalize the production of hemp in their territory.
These are not the final rules. These rules were provided by the USDA as a courtesy and the final rules may include changes. It is important that we all read these rules, in their entirety, and reach out to the USDA with any changes you think can improve these rules.
