Oregon still struggles to create hemp industry | Hemp to become the third cannabis industry legal in Oregon, illegal federally

The Bulletin
The Oregon Department of Agriculture is nearing a deadline to create rules for hemp growers that will give the state regulatory power over a third cannabis industry that will be legal in Oregon but illegal at the federal level.

The rule-making process has been slow, with newly written draft rules coming more than five years after the Legislature legalized hemp. A review of the rules shows the state still needs to make changes to ensure license holders are protected from federal interference if farmers get seeds in the ground in spring 2015.
