2018 Farm Bill
The 2018 Farm Bill completely removes hemp and anything made from hemp from the Controlled Substances Act. Once the restrictions are lifted under the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp will be treated the same as any other commodity crop. At that time Kentucky farmers and farmers across the entire U.S. will have the ability to grow this versatile crop.
In the legislation of the 2018 Farm Bill hemp is defined as the cannabis plant, the same plant that produces marijuana but with one difference – hemp cannot contain more than 0.3 percent of THC. Under the 2018 Farm Bill, any cannabis plant that contains more than 0.3 percent THC would be considered non-hemp cannabis or marijuana. In years past, hemp was not differentiated from other cannabis plants under Federal law, but the 2018 Farm Bill has changed that.
The 2018 Farm Bill now allows for the transfer of hemp-derived products across all state lines. The 2018 Farm Bill also removes restrictions on the sale, transport, or possession of hemp-derived products, providing those items are produced according to the law.
Also under the 2018 Farm Bill, there will be shared state-federal regulatory power over hemp cultivation and production. Under the 2018 Farm Bill, each state’s department of agriculture must consult with their governor and chief law enforcement officer and come up with a plan that must be submitted to the Secretary of USDA. Under the 2018 Farm Bill, each state’s plan to license and regulate hemp can only begin once the Secretary of USDA approves that state’s plan. Under the 2018 Farm Bill, if a state opts not to devise a hemp regulatory program, then the USDA will devise a regulatory program in which hemp cultivators in those states must apply for licenses and comply with a federally run program.
Lastly, the 2018 Farm Bill outlines actions that are considered violations of the new federal hemp law. The 2018 Farm Bill states that activities such as cultivating without a license or producing cannabis with more than 0.3 percent THC are prohibited.
The 2018 Farm Bill also extends hemp research by including hemp under the Critical Agricultural Materials Act. This act recognizes the importance, diversity, and opportunity that the hemp plant provides to make the products that can be derived from it. The 2018 Farm Bill also recognizes that there is still a lot to learn about the hemp plant and its products.
