Gov. DeSantis Signs Bill to Create State Hemp Program

Gov. Ron DeSantis closed out Tuesday signing a raft of 15 bills, including legislation authorizing a state hemp program.

SB 1020, which creates an industrial hemp program under the auspices of the state’s Department of Agriculture, cleared the Senate and House by unanimous votes this Session.

The bill, sponsored by Senate Appropriations Chairman Rob Bradley, would allow the Department to administer regulations regarding licensing and cultivation of hemp, the THC-deficient cousin of marijuana.
