Nevada Disobeys the Feds, Passes Revolutionary Law to Grow Commercial Hemp


As more states stand up to the federal "War on Drugs," Nevada's become just the most recent state to fight back, legalizing commercial industrial hemp production.



Senate Bill 396, signed by Governor Brian Sandoval, authorizes the cultivation of industrial hemp for commercial purposes. The bill passed by a vote of 34 to 5.




The new law expands the previous hemp approved, which had previously been limited to university and college programs as well as the Nevada Department of Agriculture. 

The new law, though, allows licenses for commercial growers, handlers, and producers.

The new law states Nevadan individuals who “wishes to grow or handle industrial hemp or produce agricultural hemp seed” must register with the Department of Agriculture, and must test “commodities or products made using industrial hemp by an independent testing laboratory.”

Nevada became the seventh state to legalize marijuana for recreational use on Jan. 1. Senate Bill 396 acknowledges hemp’s role in the flourishing industry.
