Virginia Hemp Bill a Step Forward, but Falls Short of Nullifying Federal Prohibition

Tenth Amendment Center
A new bill introduced into the Virginia General Assembly would authorize the growing and production of industrial hemp within the state within the guidelines, but unfortunately falls short of nullifying any unconstitutional federal laws.

Introduced by Rep. Joseph R. Yost in July and pending a committee referral, HB 1277 directs the Commissioner of the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to adopt regulations and establishes an industrial hemp research program through a Virginia Industrial Hemp Program Fund.
