what to do about legalized hemp. Million-dollar hemp crops are bulldozed by law enforcement officials, perhaps mistakenly, because some of it was growing on land not licensed for such use. It’s a familiar story, where the hemp industry is growing faster than the legal standards designed to govern it. That means confusion for cops and bad news for farmers.

industrial hemp is a strain of the Cannabis sativa plant species that is grown specifically for the industrial uses of its derived products. It is one of the fastest-growing plants and was one of the first plants to be spun into usable fiber 10,000 years ago.

Hemp growers rejoiced a year ago when U.S. lawmakers reclassified the plant as a legal agricultural crop. Now they’re worried proposed federal regulations will cripple their businesses. ‪High anxiety: Proposed US hemp rules worry industry https://apnews.com/c91c7d8d17281930975e192550b39b89
