No hemp was grown in Texas last year.

On this page you will find Texas hemp law along with a history of how Texas hemp bills have progressed through the State capitol over the years. We also provide links to important information concerning Texas hemp programs and state agency advisories or opinion letters. Our goal is to keep the public, media and policy makers informed on each states status concerning hemp law and policy.
