SB 209 - Under the current law, any sale, distribution, or offer to sell any agricultural hemp is regulated by the Missouri Department of Agriculture.

Under the current law, the Department of Agriculture regulates agricultural hemp registration and seed permit and may impose civil penalties for any violations.

The current law gives authority to the Department of Agriculture to regulate licensing, storage, testing requirements, manufacture, waste disposal, and transportation of hemp extract.

Additionally, the current law gives authority to the Missouri State Highway Patrol to perform aerial surveillance of industrial hemp plants to ensure compliance with the current law.

This act repeals the current law regulating industrial hemp and hemp cultivation.
