Wyoming state policymakers have recently vetoed a bill to prohibit smokable hemp and products having CBD. It is to be noted that Wyoming is a landlocked state in the western United States. The tenth biggest state by area, it is also the least populous and 2nd most sparsely populated state in the United States.
The suggestion came at the appeal of law enforcement. They give the rationale that they have no method of distinguishing between hemp and marijuana when they’re on patrol, as per a report published by the Casper Star-Tribune. Earlier this week, a state Senate committee defeated the proposal.
During testimony, Doug Miyamoto, the Wyoming Department of Agriculture Director commented in front of policymakers that the United States Food and Drug Administration hasn’t delineated instructions for selling hemp-derived products.
“I just don’t know what this bill does. I think a lot of it still needs to be adjudicated in how it gets regulated. … We just don’t have a lot of certainty about who is supposed to be doing what with hemp right now.”
Interestingly, the hemp producers who testified in contradiction of the bill told lawmakers the suggestion would stall the business’s development and progress in the state.
