As I described in my last post, until very recently, the federal government considered industrial hemp a Schedule I controlled substance. But when Congress finalized the 2018 Farm Bill last December, all of that changed; the new bill de-scheduled hemp as a controlled substance and allows it to cross state lines for commercial purposes.
Hemp’s new classification has opened doors for farmers like me to try a new crop. It’s also given rise to more questions than answers.
