Mississippi is one of only three states that have not established a hemp program. In fact, there are real concerns that Mississippi officials will treat hemp as marijuana. Fortunately, positive change is happening. HB 320 was recently introduced in the Mississippi House. The bill removes hemp-derived CBD from Mississippi’s Schedule I controlled substances list. This is an important first step. If enacted, HB 320 will remove all doubt that hemp is legal in the Magnolia State and possibly open the doors to a full hemp program. Mississippi Hemp Supporters are encouraged to use our State Action Center to urge state legislators to support HB 320.
