Senate Bill 50 was recently proposed for the purpose of establishing an industrial hemp industry in Pennsylvania. If passed, Individuals and entities would be allowed to grow, cultivate, process and market industrial hemp. While a member of the cannabis family, industrial hemp has a very low level of THC. From textiles to building materials to food to paper and energy products, industrial hemp can be used in more than 50,000 potential applications and, until the last century, was commonly grown in Pennsylvania. To decrease importing of hemp from China, France and Canada, the federal Farm Bill of 2014 authorized pilot programs across the county.
