The U.S. Department of Agriculture has approved New York’s hemp plan and the agency is now accepting applications under the new regime. All currently licensed growers must reapply under the program to grow hemp next year. The new rules include a Federal Bureau of Investigation background check requirement within 60 days of application submission; end-product and field reporting; inspections by the state Department of Agriculture; pre-harvest plant and post-harvest laboratory testing; and penalties for cultivating THC-rich products, including license suspension or revocation. Producers must also send reports to the USDA and the Farm Service Agency (FSA). In a press release, state Agriculture Commissioner Richard A. Ball said hemp cultivators “will have stability and consistency in regulations moving forward, with continued guidance and support from the department.” “New York State has been a leader in the hemp industry since the launch of its pilot program, with producers registered to grow industrial hemp on 30,000 acres.” — Ball in a statement Last year, the New York Agriculture Department said the state would not submit a hemp plan to the USDA until it changed certain program requirements forcing growers to apply to the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service to receive a hemp production license. Ball had described federal hemp testing and plant disposal regulations outlined in the 2018 federal Farm Bill as “unrealistic” and said they “impose unreasonable burdens on growers and any state interested in administering a compliant program.” Prior to the 2018 reforms, individual states operated their own hemp programs free from federal interference under a plan approved by federal lawmakers in 2014.

美国农业部(USDA)已经批准了纽约的大麻计划,该机构现在正在接受新制度下的申请。所有目前获得许可的种植者明年必须根据该计划重新申请种植大麻。 新规定包括联邦调查局要求在申请提交后60天内进行背景调查;最终产品和实地报告;国家农业部的检查;收获前的工厂和收获后的实验室测试;以及对培育富含四氢大麻酚产品的处罚,包括吊销或吊销许可证。 生产者还必须向美国农业部和农业服务局(FSA)提交报告。 在一份新闻稿中,州农业专员理查德·a·鲍尔(Richard a.Ball)表示,大麻种植者“在该部门的持续指导和支持下,将在监管方面保持稳定和一致。” “自试点项目启动以来,纽约州一直是大麻行业的领导者,生产者注册在3万英亩土地上种植工业大麻。”--鲍尔在一份声明中说 去年,纽约农业部表示,该州不会向美国农业部提交大麻计划,直到它改变某些项目要求,迫使种植者向美国农业部农业营销服务局申请大麻生产许可证。 鲍尔形容2018年联邦农业法案中概述的联邦大麻测试和植物处理法规“不现实”,并表示它们“给种植者和任何有兴趣管理合规项目的州带来了不合理的负担”。在2018年改革之前,根据联邦立法者在2014年批准的一项计划,各州在不受联邦干预的情况下运作自己的大麻项目。 在收件箱中获取每日新闻见解。订阅 结束 作者: TG于2014年加入Ganjapreneur担任新闻作家,并于2016年开始主持Ganjapreneur播客。他住在纽约州北部,在当地的一所大学教授媒体研究。
