HISTORY: 2018 Farm Bill ends ban on hemp in USA
FILM: President Donald Trump signed the 2018 Farm Bill into law Thursday. The measure contains provisions that significantly loosen the bonds on industrial hemp across all 50 states in the USA after more than 80 years. The law takes effect in January. Provisions in the bill treat hemp as an agricultural commodity and remove it from the Drug Enforcement Agency’s list of schedule 1 drugs. (Q2 News, KTVQ-TV, is the CBS affiliate in Billings, Mont.)
