Be sure and mark your calendar for the annual “Year in Review” meeting scheduled for Wednesday, December 16th .

Industrial hemp means a plant of the genus cannabis and any part of the plant, whether growing or not, containing a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of no more than three-tenths of one percent on a dry weight basis.
The Industrial Hemp Program registers growers of industrial hemp and samples the crop to verify that the THC concentration does not exceed 0.3% on dry weight basis.
Registration is required for both commercial production as well as for research and development with industrial hemp.
"Importation of viable industrial hemp seed across State lines and Country boundaries is illegal under the Federal Controlled Substances Act."
