This week, critical hemp legislation was introduced in the New Jersey legislature: Assembly Bill 5322 and Senate Bill 3686. These identical companion bills, based on the Roundtable’s Model State Act, would align New Jersey’s nascent hemp program with the 2018 Farm Bill – and importantly, provide explicit protections for the retail sale of hemp products such hemp-derived CBD.
Tomorrow (Thursday, May 16), these bills will be heard by the Assembly Agriculture & Natural Resources Committee (1 PM ET) and the Senate Economic Growth Committee (10:30 AM ET).
