US Farm Bill signed into law which legalizes hemp

Recommended Posts

On Thursday, December 20, 2018 President Trump signed the US Farm Bill into law which legalizes hemp a key source of highly touted wellness ingredient CBD.

“The passage of the 2019 Farm Bill is good news because it provides a strong safety net for farmers and ranchers, who need the dependability and certainty this legislation affords,” Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said in a statement after the bill passed the House.

The final bill does include several new changes to the SNAP program, though none will restrict families’ food stamp benefits, according to congressional aides.

The final farm bill provides permanent funding for a number of programs Congress was funding on a temporary basis, five years at a time.

Some of these include: promotional funds for local farmers markets, research money for organic farming, and funds for organizations working to train the next generation of farmers.

The bill also provides permanent funding for veteran and minority farmers.

Bottom Line…The farm bill legalizes the production of hemp.
