There was said to be a decent amount of interest with farmers already within the state, who were interested in embracing this crop and seeing about what benefits it could provide.
For the farmers in NC who are interested in taking part in the hemp program, they would need to acquire a permission slip(state license) first, before they could go about growing the crop. The administration of that slip would be under the authority of the Industrial Hemp Commission for the state.
But the DEA is said to be interfering with the progress by getting involved with shipments of hemp seeds.
