Urge Governor Little to Sign H0126
PASSED December 31, 2021
H0126 would legalize hemp production in Idaho (starting in 2022). Idaho is the only state that has not legalized hemp production at the state level. Importantly, the bill would also remove hemp and THCs in hemp from the definitions of marijuana and THC, which Idaho’s laws do not currently do. This effort, which has been ongoing for a few years, has now passed the Idaho House and Senate. The bill should be headed to the Governor’s desk soon.
Without doubt, there are notable problems with H0126. For example, the bill would also require hemp transporters to consent to an inspection by police if lawfully stopped while transporting hemp and would allow police to take a sample of the hemp at the transporter’s expense. We would prefer that the bill not include these provisions.
