In Texas, Hemp Will Be Removed From Controlled Substance List In April

Hemp could save Texas agriculture and very well may come April.

That's because on April 5th, hemp will no longer be a controlled substance in Texas.

It's new territory for the state, so, the state legislature will still have to clarify a few matters concerning the integral production of hemp and clear up questions like testing and labeling products to be FDA approved.

The federal government removed hemp from its list of controlled substances in last year's Farm Bill, and the state is following suit.



The FDA will need to approve whether growing hemp must be done as part of a state-approved program.

What about marijuana though? The fight to legalize in Texas continues.
