Georgia Becomes 42nd State to Allow Hemp Farming
Hemp, Inc., a global leader in the industrial hemp industry, announced that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp has signed a bill to allow hemp farming.
“Governor Kemp signing this bill is a monumental step forward for Georgia — a state known for having land and many skilled farmers who are excited to start cultivating hemp,” said Bruce Perlowin, Hemp, Inc. CEO. “The signing of this bill in Georgia also provides Hemp, Inc. the opportunity to begin the search for partnerships across the state and continuously add to our already robust list of ventures across the country.”
Georgia is the 42ns state in the U.S. to start a hemp program, which will allow farmers to cultivate hemp for CBD, textiles and more once regulations are put in place. The license to grow hemp costs $50 per acre annually.
