The ban is lifted and the race kicks off as farmers and businesses around the United States begin to grow hemp, America's newest cash crop. The swirl of excitement around the legalization of hemp has every layer of government asking what it can do to regulate the plant, ensuring the safe cultivation, production, and, in the case of CBD, consumption. The September CML Knowledge Now white paper offers a municipal perspective on hemp regulation, with articles by CML staff attorney, Laurel Witt, and guest authors, Brian Koontz of Colorado Department of Agriculture, Jeff Lawrence of Colorado Division of Environmental Health and Sustainability, and Hunter Buffington of the Hemp Feed Coalition.
