The U.S. Division of Agriculture (USDA) has issued regulations governing the production of hemp as an agricultural commodity. The draft regulations (issued as an interim final rule) cover the needs for exactly where hemp can be grown, THC testing requirements, the disposal method for crops that do not meet federal requirements and licensing protocols. (Study the draft version of the interim final rule.)
These federal hemp regulations are powerful instantly, but topic to alter primarily based on public comment. The interim final rule on hemp will be formally published in the Federal Register on Thursday, with a 60-day public comment period to comply with. As soon as the guidelines are finalized, Texas can submit their state-level regulations plans. As soon as accepted by the USDA, Texas can start our formal state rulemaking method.
This implementation guarantees essential possibilities and protections afforded to other farmers and supplies lengthy-awaited clarity for regulators. Remain tuned for much more as this develops.
