The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (“2018 Farm Bill”) legalized hemp by removing the crop and its derivatives from the definition of marijuana under the Controlled Substances Act (“CSA”) and by providing a detailed framework for the cultivation of hemp. The 2018 Farm Bill gives the US Department of Agriculture (“USDA”) regulatory authority over hemp cultivation at the federal level. In turn, states have the option to maintain primary regulatory authority over the crop cultivated within their borders by submitting a plan to the USDA. This federal and state interplay has resulted in many legislative and regulatory changes at the state level. Indeed, most states have introduced (and adopted) bills that would authorize the commercial production of hemp within their borders. A smaller but growing number of states also regulate the sale of products derived from hemp. In light of these legislative changes, we are presenting a 50-state series analyzing how each jurisdiction treats hemp-derived cannabidiol (“Hemp-CBD”). Each Sunday, we summarize a new state in alphabetical order. Today, we cover New Hampshire. In 2019, the New Hampshire legislature passed HB 459, a piece of legislation aimed at establishing hemp cultivation in New Hampshire. HB 459 defines hemp as an agricultural product that may be cultivated in New Hampshire. The law requires that growers, processors, and “commercial traders” of hemp to be registered with the USDA. The law also established a committee to study the administrative mechanisms for permitting growing hemp in New Hampshire consistent with the 2018 Farm Bill, as well as the labeling requirements for hemp products sold in the state. The committee was supposed to have reported its findings by November 1, 2019. However, it looks like that report has not been made as the committee was only relatively recently formed and thus the state is not yet fully open for hemp production. Just a few weeks ago, however, the legislature introduced HB 1658, which if passed will create a hemp registration program in Hew Hampshire. However, this is unlikely to pass for at least a few months as it goes through the normal legislative process, so for now the state is left with HB 459. As to Hemp-CBD, a guideline issued by the New Hampshire Liquor Commission in 2018 and revised in June 2019 states that Hemp-CBD may not be added to foods or alcohol products in New Hampshire. It does not appear that any state agency has weighed in on other classes of products, but because the above guideline incorporates the Food and Drug Administration’s (“FDA”) position on Hemp-CBD foods, it’s safe to assume that the state would follow the FDA’s position on other products. That said, in December 2019, the state legislature introduced HB 1581, a bill that would regulate the sale of Hemp-CBD products. The law would require that such products be manufactured in New Hampshire, would impose testing and labeling requirements on the processor, and would require that any hemp product produced in New Hampshire be registered with the state Department of Agriculture, Markets, and Food (“NHDAMF”). The law also gives NHDAMF, after consulting with the department of health and human services, the authority to regulate Hemp-CBD products. For now, the law’s not well-settled in New Hampshire. If these new proposed laws pass, there will be big changes in the state. However, since these laws were only just introduced, it is difficult to anticipate whether they will pass or, if they do, what changes would be made in the legislative process.

《2018年农业改进法案》(“2018年农业法案”)通过根据《受控物质法案》(“ CSA ”)从大麻定义中删除作物及其衍生物,并为大麻的种植提供详细框架,使大麻合法化。2018年农业法案授予美国农业部( USDA )在联邦层面对大麻种植的监管权力。反过来,各州有权通过向美国农业部提交一份计划,维持对其境内种植作物的主要监管机构。 这种联邦和州的相互作用在州一级导致了许多立法和规章的变化。事实上,大多数国家已经提出(并通过)法案,授权在其境内进行大麻商业化生产。越来越多的州也对大麻产品的销售进行管理。 根据这些立法变化,我们提出了一个50个州的系列分析,分析每个司法管辖区如何对待来源于大麻的大麻。每个星期天,我们按字母顺序总结一个新的州.今天,我们报道了新罕布什尔州。 2019年,新罕布什尔州立法机构通过了 HB459,这是一项旨在在新罕布什尔州建立大麻种植的立法。HB459将大麻定义为一种可以在新罕布什尔州种植的农产品。该法要求大麻的种植者、加工者和“商业贸易商”在美国农业部注册。该法律还设立了一个委员会,研究允许在新罕布什尔种植大麻的行政机制,以符合2018年《农场法案》以及该州销售的大麻产品的标签要求。 该委员会本应在2019年11月1日前报告其调查结果。然而,这份报告似乎还没有发表,因为委员会只是在最近才成立,因此国家尚未完全开放大麻生产。然而,就在几周前,立法机构推出了 HB1658,如果通过,将创建一个大麻登记计划在休汉普郡。然而,这不太可能通过至少几个月,因为它通过了正常的立法程序,所以现在国家是 HB459。 至于 Hemp-CBD ,新罕布什尔白酒委员会于2018年发布并于2019年6月修订的准则规定,不得将 Hemp-CBD 添加到新罕布什尔的食品或酒精产品中。似乎没有任何一个州机构对其他类别的产品施加压力,但由于上述指导方针包含了美国食品药品监督管理局(Food and Drug Administration)( FDA )对 Hemp-CBD 食品的立场,因此可以放心地认为,美国将遵循 FDA 对其他产品的立场。 尽管如此,2019年12月,州立法机构出台了 HB1581法案,该法案将规范 Hemp-CBD 产品的销售。法律将要求这些产品在新罕布什尔州生产,将对处理器施加测试和标签要求,并要求在新罕布什尔州生产的任何大麻产品都必须在州农业、市场和食品部门(“ NHDAMF ”)注册。该法律还赋予了 NHDAMF ,在咨询了卫生和人类服务部之后,管理血液生化需氧量产品的权力。 目前,新罕布什尔的法律还没有得到很好的解决。如果这些新提议的法律获得通过,国家将发生重大变化。然而,由于这些法律只是刚刚出台,很难预测这些法律是否会通过,如果会通过,立法进程将会作出哪些改变。 在新罕布什尔汉姆普- CBD 的更新中,请随时关注 Canna 法律博客。对于本系列以前的报道,请查看以下链接: 阿拉巴马州 阿拉斯加 亚利桑那州 阿肯色州 加利福尼亚 科罗拉多州 康涅狄格州 特拉华州 弗洛里达州 佐治亚 夏威夷 爱达荷州 伊利诺伊州 印第安纳州 爱荷华州 堪萨斯州 肯塔基州 路易斯安那州 缅因州 马里兰州 马萨诸塞州 密歇根州 明尼苏达州 密西西比州 密苏里州 蒙大拿州 内布拉斯加州 内华达州
