Today, the Washington Hemp Law passed out of the Executive Committee on Commerce and Gaming with an industry-supported amendment regarding legal human consumption of hemp and hemp-derived products such as CBD. The amended language of the bill represents a significant step forward for the State of Washington in the emerging hemp industry.

Next steps for the bill include resolving language with the Senate version before it’s sent to the Governor’s desk for final signature. Many people in the industry will celebrate this as a significant step forward.
