On May 14, 2018 Senate Bill 1098 was signed by Governor Ducey that will authorize the Arizona Department of Agriculture to license qualified applicants to grow and process industrial hemp starting in the Summer of 2019.

EFFECTS OF THE 2018 FARM BILL: On December 20, 2018 the 2018 Federal Farm Bill was signed into law and legalized industrial hemp (“hemp”) by excluding it if from the definition of marijuana. It also expanded the definition to include seeds, all derivatives, extracts, cannabinoids (including Cannabidiol (CBD)), isomers, acids, salts, and salts of isomers. There are also several other changes made that will open up the commercialization of hemp, without the limitations of an industrial hemp agricultural pilot program. However, there still remains the need for legitimate research to further the development of this crop in Arizona.

What does this mean for Arizona?

With the passage of Senate Bill 1003,the effective date for the Industrial Hemp Programhas been officially moved to May 31, 2019.
