Idaho lastly will get nearer to legalizing hemp-CBD


Owning more than three ounces of marijuana can land you in jail for five years.

But what about CBD?

In particular, what is obtained from hemp and contains the legal limit of not more than 0.3% THC?

Still illegal.

Idaho CBD Laws State: "The oil extract must not contain any amount of THC – not less than 0.3%. Second, the oil extract can not be considered "marijuana" within the meaning of the Idaho Code § 37-2701 (t). t) …, such oil is a controlled substance in Idaho.

On Monday, however, the situation on the hemp front in Idaho turned in a more positive direction.

A Law on the Legalization of Hemp that substantially aligns the State of Idaho Law with the Farm Bill of 2018 was passed overwhelmingly on Monday.

Only seven legislators opposed the bill.

One of the co-sponsors of the bill is Republican Caroline Nilsson Troy, who says the law is not an attempt to legalize marijuana, but advocates the free market.

Others are not so convinced.

The Idaho Prosecuting Attorneys Association sent a letter to lawmakers last week to force them to reject the bill.

An excerpt from the letter reads: "HB 122 does not protect law enforcement and will effectively legalize marijuana in the state."

Say what?

Do you still have to be informed about the difference between hemp and marijuana? Seems like …

According to the letter, some of the sponsors of the law have misled the public with regard to law enforcement test capabilities.

They claim that law enforcement agencies do not always recognize the difference between marijuana and hemp based on information.

"All these and many more problems could be solved if a consensus law were considered. Unfortunately, the law enforcement community of Idaho was excluded from the conversation. "

Republican Republican Dorothy Moon is co-sponsored and approved to fund hemp test equipment for the State Police of Idaho to determine the difference between hemp and marijuana.
