Excerpt from article:
But farmers and other aspiring hemp businesses in states like Ohio are left in the lurch because there is no regulatory framework for it.
"Ohio never created a pilot program," said Thomas Haren, executive vice president of the recently formed Ohio Hemp Association. "Now we need to create a hemp program or be cut out of the market, and Ohioans will miss out on an immense opportunity."
While there's no timeline for when the bill may be passed, "make no mistake about it, there's momentum behind hemp legislation in Columbus," Haren asserted.
