Michigan Issues Emergency Rules Setting Testing Standards for Industrial Hemp Crop

Emergency rules have been issued to Michigan’s hemp industry from the state.

The hemp industry, which doesn’t have high THC levels like marijuana, has been in a pilot program for the 2019 season.

The Michigan Department of Agriculture reports that there are 541 hemp growers across the state, covering about 32,000 acres.

The new rules set proper sampling and analytical testing methods for measuring the amount of THC in industrial hemp to ensure levels are not higher than .03%.
