Do I need a license to grow Hemp in Florida?

Florida's state hemp program is now law and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) is currently drafting the rules that will be used to implement the program around the state. Based upon recent Hemp Rules Workshops held by the FDACS, here are some anticipated rules for those who want to grow hemp in Florida. First, to cultivate hemp in Florida, a person is likely going to need a license issued by the FDACS. Second, the person cultivating the hemp is likely going to need to describe the location (address or legal description), or plot, where the hemp will be grown. Third, the grower is likely going to need to take and pass an FDLE background check. FDACS also anticipates drafting rules regulating seeds, animal feed, labeling, commercial testing, and other areas. Contact McIntosh Law P.A. for answers to your hemp license questions.
