Regulators Clear Banks to Work With Hemp Industry

Hemp farmers will be glad to learn that one of the biggest issues affecting the hemp industry, lack of access to proper banking services, will soon be a thing of the past.

The legislation sought to clarify the differences between industrial hemp and marijuana, as well as to repeal federal laws that forbid the cultivation and sale of industrial hemp. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the country had imported hemp worth $3.07 million in 2009. However,…
