Excerpt: The Hemp Farming Act of 2018:
"For states and tribes that want to encourage local hemp production, this bill authorizes their ability to regulate hemp growth and production by submitting a plan to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. These plans must demonstrate how states and tribes plan to maintain relevant information regarding locations of hemp production, test plants and products for THC concentration, dispose of plants that are out of compliance with this act, and to account for negligent and other violations of the state or tribal plan. Hemp production in states or tribes that do not have USDA approved plans must continue following federal laws and regulations. This section would amend the Agricultural Marketing Act of 1946 (7 U.S.C. 1621 et seq.) to let states build off investments made through the successful pilots established under the 2014 Farm Bill."
