Minnesota: House Members Pass Measure To Permit Growing Of Industrial Hemp

Posted by on November 4, 2016

House members on May 4 voted 110 to 18 in favor of legislation, HF 1437, to authorize the state-sanctioned production of industrial hemp.

The measure now goes to the Senate for further consideration.

Last year, members of Congress approved language in the omnibus federal Farm Bill explicitly authorizing states to sponsor hemp research absent federal reclassification of the plant. Presently, 21 states have enacted legislation permitting licensed hemp cultivation in a manner that is compliant with this statute.
