Governor Jared Polis recently signed a bill that aligns Colorado hemp laws with federal regulations. The bill establishes authorized testing of all hemp lots and institutes penalties of around $2,000 per violation daily.

The Farm Bill of 2018 allowed the U.S. Department of Agriculture to regulate hemp farming which focused on testing crops that contained more than 0.3% of tetrahydrocannabinol – an ingredient found in high concentrations in marijuana.

According to Barbara McLachlan, one of the sponsors of the bill, “Colorado’s farmers are growing hemp on tens of thousands of acres across our state. Now that the federal government has finally recognized the agricultural importance of hemp, we’re bringing our state laws into alignment and streamlining regulations for our industrial producers. Colorado has never been afraid to lead the way and set an example for the rest of the country, and our hemp production industry is no different.”
