Gov. to sign industrial hemp bill
HONOLULU —Gov. Neil Abercrombie is scheduled to sign SB2175 into law on Wednesday. The bill authorizes the University of Hawaii at Manoa to establish a two-year industrial hemp remediation and biofuel research program.
This year, the United States Senate approved the Agriculture Act of 2014, also known as the “Farm Bill,” and industrial hemp is now allowed to be grown for research purposes. According to the National Farm Bill, any university can now grow industrial hemp without obtaining a Drug Enforcement Agency permit.
