Idaho governor approves hemp transportation across state



Idaho Gov. Brad Tiny issued an executive order aligning the state’s law enforcement activities with federal statutes to enable the transport of hemp across the state.

The Republican governor issued the order in the wake of the U.S. Division of Agriculture interim rule published on Oct. 31.

Tiny mentioned Idaho is most likely in conflict with federal law and the executive order is necessary to temporarily resolve the conflict till state legislators discover a permanent resolution.

Federal law prevents states from prohibiting the transportation of legal hemp. But Idaho’s anti-marijuana laws are so broadly written that they contain hemp.

In January, Idaho authorities arrested a truck driver and seized practically 7,000 pounds (three,175 kilograms) of what they believed to be marijuana, even although the firm shipping the material mentioned accompanying paperwork created clear the cargo was industrial hemp.

Hemp farming is not legal in Idaho, as the state has not passed hemp production legislation.
