North Carolina Governor Signs Bill Permanently Legalizing Hemp

North Carolinians celebrated a legislative win this week, thanks to a last minute Senate vote that permanently removed hemp from the state's list of controlled substances. The S.B. 455, Conform Hemp with Federal Law and a separate bill, S.B. 762, caused tense moments for retailers and growers concerned their budding businesses could be impacted if a hemp provision was kept in the later bill. North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper signed the bill, S.B.455, into law June 30, 2022

Many farmers and retailers spoke out regarding the irresponsible nature of the delays in legislation stating they could cause harm to their businesses and the general public. 

A 2015 pilot program in the state temporarily legalized hemp. There are currently over 1,500 hemp producers in North Carolina, according to NC Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services estimates

The new legislation aligns state and federal law to ensure its legality permanently and was signed by Governor Roy Cooper on June 30, 2022.
