Oregon Ag Committee Drafting Rules for Industrial Hemp

Posted: Updated:

 

PORTLAND, OR - Oregon agriculture officials hope to have rules for industrial production of hemp in place in time for a spring planting.

A committee of policy experts appointed by the Oregon Department of Agriculture will meet in December to discuss the creation of a program that would meet federal approval.

Oregon is one of seven states that permit the production of industrial hemp, a relative of marijuana grown for fiber and seeds.
