Date Introduced 03/29/2019

In 2018, the federal government enacted the Agricultural
Improvement Act of 2018 (federal act), which removed hemp from

schedule I of the federal Controlled Substances Act. The federal act
requires the United States department of agriculture (USDA) to develop
a plan for the regulation of hemp and authorizes each state to seek
approval from the USDA to have primary regulatory authority over hemp
production within the state by preparing and submitting a state plan of
regulation to the secretary of the USDA.
The bill updates the laws governing Colorado's industrial hemp
regulatory program to align with the federal act and to put the department
of agriculture in a position to prepare and submit a state plan to the
secretary of the USDA.
