The USDA Releases Long Awaited Interim Rules for the Hemp Industry - NJ Cannabis Blog
On October 29, 2019, the USDA released its long awaited interim rules for the hemp industry, following the passage of the 2018 Farm Bill last year that descheduled hemp under the Controlled Substances Act. These are interim rules and the USDA is accepting comments over the next few months.
The 160 pages of rules cover a variety of topics including testing of levels of delta-9 THC, licensing requirements, and establishing procedures for states to submit plans for the cultivation, processing and sale of hemp in their state.
