Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman has signed Legislative Bill 1001, a proposal to legalize the cultivation of hemp for research purposes, into law. The measure takes immediate effect.

Under the new law, the University of Nebraska and the state’s Department of Agriculture can now legally cultivate hemp for research purposes. Given the federal government recently legalized hemp research in states that have done the same, Legislative Bill 1001 is in compliance with federal law.

According to recent congressional research, the U.S. imports roughly half a billion dollars in hemp from other countries, primarily Canada and China, while retaining the illegality of its cultivation amongst its own farmers. The same research estimates the hemp market to consist of over 25,000 various products.
