There’s a war on hemp being waged in state capitols across the nation by some big names in the marijuana industry.
SB 455: Conform Hemp with Federal Law
"AN ACT TO CONFORM THE HEMP LAWS WITH FEDERAL LAW BY PERMANENTLY EXCLUDING HEMP FROM THE STATE CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES ACT"
Under previous NC law, “industrial hemp” is carved out as an exception to the definition of “marijuana”; however, as of June 30, 2022, the exemption is removed, at which point all forms of cannabis will be considered illegal marijuana with no apparent exception for hemp.
At a minimum the statutory expiration of all hemp provisions will create confusion regarding what products and activities are lawful in NC. At worst, it will provide an opening for law enforcement to prosecute hemp sellers and individuals who possess CBD and hemp products.
The NC General Assembly has passed SB455 or the "Conform NC Hemp Laws with Federal Law Act". This bill protects the state's hemp industry after June 30th, 2022.
