USDA says states can’t block hemp transport

States cannot block the interstate transport of legally produced hemp products, according to a legal opinion from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The May 28 opinion concludes that states and federally recognized Native American tribes must allow the free-flow of hemp across state lines and reservations envisaged in the 2018 Farm Bill. Despite the legalization of hemp, state authorities have seized shipments and prosecuted truckers.
