8:30 a.m. – House Study Bill 572:

House Study Bill 572 was proposed by Public Safety committee chair Rep. Jarad Klein. It’s an act prohibiting hemp and hemp products intended for inhalation.

The bill prohibits a person from possessing, using, manufacturing, marketing, transporting, delivering or distributing harvested hemp or a hemp product if the intended use is introduction into the body of a human or animal by any method of inhalation.

The prohibition does not apply to the extent that federal law, including the federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, authorizes as its intended use the introduction of harvested hemp or a hemp product by a method of inhalation.
