There are growing pains in Arizona’s newly created hemp industry, as high THC levels are forcing some farmers to destroy their crops. The Arizona Department of Agriculture’s Plant Services Division reports about 41-percent of the hemp in Arizona tested for THC have failed.
In May 2018, Senate Bill 1098, which was introduced by State Senator Sonny Borrelli of Lake Havasu City, was signed by Governor Ducey. The legislation authorized the Arizona Department of Agriculture to license qualified applicants to grow and process industrial hemp. The department began issuing licenses to the state’s farmers on May 31, 2019.
