The Loveless reach of the Minnesota Court of Appeals and herculean legislative efforts for course correction.
The Agricultural Act of 2014 a/k/a “The Farm Bill” defined industrial hemp as “the plant Cannabis sativa L.or any part of such plant, whether growing or not with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.”
[The confusion caused by the use of “dry weight basis” is a topic for another time.]
Four years later, hemp was removed from the definition of marijuana in the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) and the definition was amended to add …” including the seeds thereof and all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids, isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers …” via the 2018 Farm Bill.
The Farm Bill also provided parameters for seeking approval of a regulatory plan by State and Tribal governments.
