Legislation is pending, SB 1337, to permit for the licensed production of industrial hemp.
The proposal redefines hemp as a legal agricultural product and finds, “[T]he development and use of industrial hemp can improve the economy.”
It adds, “The purpose of the [legislation] is to promote the economy and agriculture in this state by allowing the development and regulation of industrial hemp.”
Arizona is one of the only states that fails to recognize hemp as an agricultural commodity rather than as a controlled substance.
