STATEMENT FROM COMMISSIONER SID MILLER ON USDA APPROVAL OF TEXAS STATE HEMP PLAN


“This is a victory for Texas farmers. With USDA approval of our Texas Hemp Plan, we are one step closer to giving our ag producers access to this exciting new crop opportunity. It is still not legal to grow hemp – so don’t put those seeds in the ground just yet. We’ve got to get our rules approved and get our licensing program up and running, but the dominoes are dropping pretty quick. We’re almost there.”


“Thanks to my friend Secretary Sonny Perdue and his staff at USDA for getting this approval done so quickly.”
