MO emergency hemp production rules in effect Oct. 18

JEFFERSON CITY, MO (KFVS) -

The Department of Agriculture has filed emergency hemp production rules to go into effect October 18, 2014.

According to the Department of Agriculture, they along with the Department of Health and Senior Services have written and filed rules with the Missouri Secretary of State relating to the production of cannabis oil and patient registration cards.

The DOA says the emergency rules regarding the cultivation and production of hemp for the purpose of producing cannabis oil for the treatment of intractable epilepsy, are in effect as of Oct. 18, 2014.

The rules will be published in the Missouri Register on Mon., Nov. 3, which will be the first day of the 30 day application period. That's when a nonprofit can apply for a hemp production facility license.

Up to two licenses will be granted.
