Death of Oregon hemp bills considered “mystery”

Hemp legislation creating a research pilot program and a crop commission in Oregon has died despite strong support and no public objections.

Bills that aimed to bring industrial hemp into the mainstream of Oregon agriculture have died despite lacking strong opposition or a hefty price tag.

Hemp seed could be tested for purity by Oregon State University under House Bill 2371, which would also have brought the crop under an official OSU research pilot program.
