U.S. officials have approved Idaho’s plan for growing and transporting hemp
U.S. officials have approved Idaho’s plan for growing and transporting hemp with up to 0.3% THC, the cannabis compound that gives marijuana its high.
The Idaho State Department of Agriculture on Monday announced receiving the approval from the U.S. Department of Agriculture following a new Idaho law approved earlier this year. The agency said it will open online license applications to grow hemp early next week.
“I’m confident we’ll have applications on Monday,” said Idaho State Department of Agriculture spokeswoman Chanel Tewalt. “We’ve had interest throughout the year with many people following the agency’s progress.”
The new law covers growing and transporting the crops but doesn’t allow selling to Idaho consumers hemp products containing any amount of THC.
