States Race to Grow Industrial Hemp

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

NAIHC.orgWashington, Nov. 10, 2015 – Kentucky leads the race to commercialize industrial hemp, as confirmed yesterday on Veterans Day when an American flag made from Kentucky-grown and –sewn hemp flew over the U.S. Capitol. But North Carolina is determined to catch up ASAP.

North Carolina has surged forward now that its Senate Bill 313, the Industrial Hemp Research Act, is law. The new law which went into effect Oct. 31 establishes that: “it is in the best interest of the citizens of North Carolina to promote and encourage the development of an industrial hemp industry in the State in order to expand employment, promote economic activity, and provide opportunities to small farmers for an environmentally sustainable and profitable use of crop lands that might otherwise be lost to agricultural production.”
