Alabama to delay hemp applications, citing federal hold up



Alabama has postponed for two weeks the opening of the application period for its 2020 hemp plan as it awaits federal interim regulations.

The registration period for growers, processors and universities will now run for 4 weeks, from Oct. 7 to Nov. 1, the Alabama Division of Agriculture and Industries stated.

The U.S. Division of Agriculture has stated its guidelines for increasing hemp have been delayed due to the fact of complications setting nationwide THC testing guidelines, amongst other points.

Alabama’s hemp plan was launched in 2019 immediately after final year’s Farm Bill declassified hemp as a Schedule 1 drug and deemed the crop as a commodity.
