On December 20, 2018, President Trump signed in to law the Agricultural Improvement Act (Farm Bill) which removed hemp from the controlled substances list. This was a historical event in that it legitimized hemp as an agricultural crop as opposed to a drug/controlled substance. However, while this legislation paved the way for the hemp industry ‘s expansion is in no way made the path to legal compliance any clearer for those in the hemp industry.
