Governor Rauner Signs Hemp Production Law
(Springfield, IL) — Illinois farmers are going to have a shot at a new cash crop. Governor Rauner over the weekend signed a new law to allow farmers in the state to grow industrial hemp. The governor says hemp has a tremendous upside in plastics, paper, fiber, and cloth. The Illinois Department of Agriculture will monitor hemp crops, to make sure that farmers aren’t growing anything with too high THC levels.
