Colorado unveils hemp farming regulations

Published:
DENVER -- Colorado has proposed regulations for legal hemp growing.
The regulations adopted Wednesday call for farmers to register and pay a $200 annual fee. They also will pay $1 per acre planted. Farms will be subject to inspections to make sure that the hemp plants limit the amount of a chemical that makes users stoned.
According to The Denver Post, potential growers are still worried because it could violate federal laws.
Hemp and its oil-rich seeds have dozens of uses in foods, cosmetics, textiles and construction materials.
Amendment 64, the 2012 Colorado ballot initiative that legalized marijuana, also provided for state licensing of hemp farming.
