Industrial Hemp May Soon Be Legal in Wyoming

By  | 

CHEYENNE, Wyo. The bill's sponsor, Bunky Loucks says it will allow Wyoming farmers to access new markets.

He says one major factor in passing the bill was the 2018 federal farm bill which removed hemp from the schedule one drug list.

Previous attempts to legalize hemp failed in part because it is often confused with marijuana as it also contains THC.

However, hemp THC levels are far lower than marijuana.
