KRWG reports

The New Mexico State University Board of Regents approved the New Mexico Department of Agriculture’s proposed hemp manufacturing rule at its regular meeting Sept. 4.

The rule accompanies statutory language that provides NMDA specific administrative authorities related to the licensing and inspection of laboratories testing raw hemp for regulatory purposes, as well as the licensing and inspection of persons breeding hemp that may possess plants greater than .3% and less than 5% THC.

Legal authority authorizing the rule is granted to the board of regents of New Mexico State University under Chapter 76, Article 24, Section 1, NMSA 1978 Compilation.

NMDA held two rulemaking hearings for the public in Albuquerque and Las Cruces in June.
