USDA Approves Florida Hemp Program

State is now accepting applications

Hemp plant 3661210 960 720

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has approved Florida’s hemp program bringing the total approved by the agency to 16. The state is now accepting industry applications, reports Ganjapreneur.

Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried said the approval gives the state’s agriculture industry “a new alternative crop for many years to come” as the Sunshine State deals with the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

Programs from three states and the U.S. Virgin Islands are still listed as “under review,” according to USDA data. Another 18 states will keep operating under their 2014 pilot programs.
