County plays waiting game on hemp rules – Imperial Valley Press

EL CENTRO — County officials are hopeful long-awaited U.S. Department of Agriculture regulations on cultivation and harvest of industrial hemp will be out later this month, but if that happens, it will be news to local USDA staff, too.

Imperial County Board of Supervisor Chairman Ryan Kelley thinks the regulations will be released later this month, which will then be followed by a comment session to allow the agriculture community to start growing hemp by the beginning of the year.
