Hemp Farming Act of 2018

On April 12, 2018, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) introduced S. 2667, the Hemp Farming Act of 2018. The bill defines hemp as Cannabis with 0.3% THC or less by dry weight including all parts of the plant and removes it from the Controlled Substances Act. It allows states to regulate commercial hemp farming after submitting a plan to regulate it to the USDA. The bill authorizes crop insurance for hemp and provides funding for hemp research.

Vote Hemp supports this important legislation and issued a press release announcing the release of the new bill. We also sent a letter of support to the bill sponsors.

Senator McConnell gave a bill introduction speech on the floor of the Senate which can be viewed in its entirety below.

We need your help to get this legislation passed. Please take action today and urge your Senators to support the Hemp Farming Act of 2018.
