Industrial Hemp

What is the Industrial Hemp Program?

As provided in Sec.7606 of the 2014 Farm Bill, industrial hemp may only be grown as part of a research or pilot project.  The Alabama Legislature passed an industrial hemp bill that would authorize the Department of Agriculture and Industries (ADAI) to administer an industrial hemp research program. 
section 2-8-380 et seq code of Alabama 1975 states an institution of higher learning may apply for a permit or waiver to grow industrial hemp for the manufacturing purpose of hemp products.
