hemp_dawn-600x412With 14 to 2 vote, Rhode Island’s House Health, Education and Welfare Committee has voted to pass House Bill 6177, a proposal that would legalize the production and cultivation of industrial hemp.

Introduced by Representative Cale Keable (D-Burrillville), and cosponsored by Representatives Newberry, Price, Blazejewski, and Slater, House Bill 6177 would allow those who pass a criminal background check to cultivate and produce hemp – including “CBD rich hemp products” – which is defined as having no more than 1% THC.

According to the bill; “Hemp/CBD rich   hemp   products”   means   all   products   made   from   the   plants, including,  but  not  limited  to,  concentrated  oil,  cloth,  cordage,  fiber,  food,  fuel,  paint,  paper, construction materials, plastics, seed, seed meal, seed oil, and certified seed for cultivation.”

House Bill 6177 now heads towards a full House vote.
