The second hemp bill in as many years has been introduced into the Colorado State Legislature. SB13-241 “CONCERNING THE CREATION OF A PROGRAM IN THE DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE TO REGULATE INDUSTRIAL HEMP PRODUCTION.” sponsored by State Senators Schwartz and Crowder with Co-Primes Nicholson, Ulibarri and House Representatives Coram and Fischer.
