Minnesota hemp farmers could sell to medical marijuana producers under new bill

508

ST. PAUL — A new market could emerge for Minnesota’s licensed hemp farmers.
Bipartisan legislation introduced Feb. 18 in the state Senate would allow hemp farmers to sell their product to in-state medical cannabis manufacturers.
Sen. Karla Bigham, DFL-Cottage Grove, who co-authored the bill, said it would give local growers another source for their product, which typically is used in food, clothing and rope. “A lot of people think industrial hemp is only a food,” she said.
