For State and Tribal Law Enforcement Only

As required by the 2018 Farm Bill (pdf), USDA developed the U.S. Domestic Hemp Production Program to provide regulatory oversight of the cultivation of hemp in the United States. The program includes provisions for the USDA to approve plans submitted by states and Indian tribes for the domestic production of hemp and establishes a federal plan for producers in states or territories of Indian tribes that do not have their own USDA-approved plan and the production of hemp is legal.

State and tribal law enforcement representatives with questions about the program can send their inquiries to farmbill.hemp@usda.gov.
