Tennessee: Hemp Production Measure Signed Into Law


NORML | May 12, 2016

Legislation, HB 2032, permitting the cultivation and processing of industrial hemp has become law.

The measure permits  for the licensed cultivation of industrial hemp when “grown by an institution of higher education in this state that offers a baccalaureate or post-graduate level program of study in agricultural sciences.”

Over 20 states have enacted similar legislation, which is compliant with Section 7606 of the 2014 federal farm bill.

The law also establishes a process for licensure for persons who wish to process or distribute industrial hemp within the state.
