Arizona Governor Vetoes Industrial Hemp Licensing Measure

PHOENIX, AZ — Arizona’s Republican Governor Doug Ducey has vetoed legislation, Senate Bill 1337, that sought to establish regulations for the creation of a regulated statewide hemp industry.

The measure determined that “the development and use of industrial hemp can improve the [state’s] economy and agricultural vitality,” and sought to govern its “licensing, production, and management.”

Over 30 states have enacted similar laws regulating the plant’s cultivation for either research or commercial purposes. Most recently, South Carolina adopted legislation expanding its 2014 hemp research program.
