Vermont: Hemp Bill Gains Momentum

Legislation seeking to define industrial hemp as an “agricultural product” and establish regulations for its production by state-licensed farmers was unanimously passed this week by members of the Vermont House Agriculture Committee. Sponsors of the bill are hopeful for a floor vote on the measure shortly.
Were the bill to be signed into law, Vermont would join over a dozen other states that have endorsed the either study or production of hemp as an agricultural commodity.
