Oregon Committee Passes Bill to Relax State Hemp Laws, Expand Market, Further Nullify Federal Prohibition

SALEM, Ore. (Feb. 12, 2016) – An Oregon bill that would relax state hemp licensing laws, making the crop more like any other agricultural products, passed out of an important committee Thursday. The measure opens up hemp to small and individual farmers, paving the way for faster development of Oregon’s hemp market, and further nullifying federal prohibition in effect.
