Update: SB 704 was read for a second time and referred to committee.
Legislation has been introduced, Senate Bill 704, to provide for hemp cultivation and manufacturing.
The measure excludes industrial hemp from the state’s definition of marijuana and provides for its commercial cultivation and export.
The measure also expands the list of qualifying conditions eligible for CBD treatment under state law. Under this change, patients with chronic pain, post-traumatic stress, and anxiety would be eligible for medicinal cannabis products as long as those formulations are in liquid form and do not exceed 12 percent THC.
Please use the prewritten letter below to urge lawmakers to support this legislation.
