Kentucky was the country's greatest producer of hemp in the 19th and 20th centuries. But two legislative efforts limited production: A 1937 marijuana taxation law characterized hemp as a narcotic and required growers to hold a federal registration and special tax stamp. And the Controlled Substances Act of 1970 made hemp illegal to grow without a permit from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. The farm bill, which President Donald Trump signed in December, makes growing hemp in the United States legal again. Now Kentucky, which the Brookings Institution called one of the best places to cultivate hemp in the world, is returning to its roots. Farmers across the country looking to move away from tobacco have big expectations that hemp can keep them in business. But experts and some farmers worry that without tighter regulations in place, farmers may overproduce a lucrative form of hemp and the market will crash.
