Industrial Hemp Pilot Program Regulations
The Federal government, as a result of the U.S. Farm Bill Section 7606, and the state of Nevada, as a result of Senate Bill 305, together create eligibility and authorized legality to initiate an industrial hemp research and development program in the state of Nevada. The following regulations imposed are used to ensure solidarity and that legal procedures are maintained throughout all cultivation efforts.
United States Farm Bill, Section 7606
Section 7606 of the U.S. Farm Bill created the ability to allow industrial hemp research and development projects to exist within the United States of America. The bill strongly exercises the notion that pilot programs must be overseen by an elected government entity (i.e., Department of Agriculture or System of Higher Education). Section 7606 also creates the definition of industrial hemp, being "the plant Cannabis sativa L.", and any part of such plant, whether growing or not , with a delta-9 tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis.
Nevada Senate Bill 305
Nevada Senate Bill 305 adopts the U.S. Farm Bill, Section 7606 regulations and imposes them within the state of Nevada. This allows eligible Nevada producers, under the guidance of an authorized government entity, to carry out research projects within the state of Nevada relevant to the cultivation of industrial hemp.
