Nevada Allows Hemp Growing -- For Limited Purposes
Hemp can now be grown for limited purposes in Nevada.
Senate Bill 305 authorizes the growing of hemp for research by the state Department of Agriculture or institutions of higher learning.
Industry trade groups say hemp is used in the manufacture of paper, biofuels, and building materials.
It's part of the family of plants related to marijuana, but it has very low THC content and experts say it will not produce any effects if smoked.
