Hemp Bill passed in Ohio

Community

The Ohio Senate has unanimously passed a bill to legalize hemp and hemp-derived cannabidiol oil and create an industrial hemp program in the state.

The bill would allow for growing of hemp as long as it contains less than 0.3 percent of THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana.

The legislation comes after a federal farm law last year reclassified the cannabis plant as a commodity rather than a drug. 

Both farmers and retailers say the legislation could result in new jobs.
