New law allows Illinois universities to conduct hemp research

Chicago Tribune
Illinois universities can legally grow industrial hemp now, but it may be a while before seeds are planted.

A new law, effective Jan. 1, allows state institutions with four-year agriculture degrees to research hemp with a license from the Illinois Department of Agriculture. Two of the four eligible schools have expressed interest — the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and Illinois State University.
