Gov. Cuomo Signs New York Hemp Law; Decision on Food, Beverages Deferred

If you’re not directly connected to the hemp industry, regulations or laws may sound like a negative thing. However, Gov. Cuomo’s efforts can actually help both growers and consumers. Gov. Cuomo said, “By establishing a regulatory framework for producing and selling hemp and hemp extract, we can set the industry on a path to continued growth in a smart, safe way that empowers both farmers and consumers.” What does the law involve? It gives the Dept. of Agriculture and Markets more power, as well as the Dept. of Health. Hemp sellers must also be registered with the state to better account for the manufacture and sale of their products. Gov. Cuomo also made the decision to defer regulations regarding CBD food and beverages.
