An Act To Promote Industrial Hemp
Sec. 1. 7 MRSA §2231, sub-§3, as enacted by PL 2009, c. 320, §1, is amended to read:
Sec. 2. 7 MRSA §2231, sub-§4, as enacted by PL 2009, c. 320, §1, is amended to read:

This bill removes the requirements that an applicant for an initial license to grow industrial hemp for commercial purposes must submit a set of the applicant's fingerprints and file with the Commissioner of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry documentation indicating that the seeds planted were a type and variety of hemp approved by the commissioner and also repeals the provision that licensure is contingent upon action by the Federal Government.
