Amid Federal Hemp Regulation Delay, N.Y. Extends Growing Season

New York state will continue its hemp growing season through 2021, after the federal government decided to delay new regulations that the state found “unrealistic.”

David Falkowski is a Long Island hemp grower. He said the USDA rules almost made him quit.
“The USDA framework for testing, total compliance timelines, potential disposal, potential criminal charges if things go hot over limits, issues regarding labs and analytics — it was very scary, and really increased the risk, both economically and you know, for crop loss,” he said.
New federal rules have a stricter definition of what’s considered legal hemp. The rules said a crop that contains more than point-three percent of the chemical, THC, would be considered marijauna. That’s an illegal drug.
Those rules have been put off until the 2022 growing season.
