Forbes Contributor, Tom Angell, outlines just how the 2018 Farm Bill has officially and Federally paved the way for Americans to grow, cultivate, produce and sell industrial hemp domestically. Removing the need to source questionable hemp from abroad.
"Consumers across America buy hundreds of millions in retail products every year that contain hemp," McConnell said in a floor speech on Thursday. "But due to outdated federal regulations that do not sufficiently distinguish this industrial crop from its illicit cousin, American farmers have been mostly unable to meet that demand themselves. It's left consumers with little choice but to buy imported hemp products from foreign-produced hemp."
