Senate Passes Farm Bill, Hemp Farming Will Be Legalized!

The Farm Bill conference committee negotiators released the conference report late last night and its excellent news for the hemp industry. Just this afternoon the Senate passed the Farm Bill 87-13.

We expect the bill to pass and be signed by the president within a matter of days. Thanks to everyone who wrote asking for Congress to support hemp in the Farm Bill! We couldn’t achieve this without your support!
We are disappointed that the committee did not remove this counterproductive provision entirely. However, they did agree to changes that will not exclude drug felons who already have a hemp license.

The bill is expected to be voted on in the House on Wednesday. Then it goes to the Presidents desk. This is a huge moment for everyone who has advocated for hemp farming in the U.S.
