Louisiana and Iowa recently implemented laws further regulating the hemp industry, including bans against smokable hemp and CBD products.
In Iowa, Gov. Kim Reynolds signed the Hemp Consumer and Public Safety law June 17, which makes amendments to the Iowa Hemp Act.
The new regulations reiterate the state’s ban on smokable hemp by clarifying that products cannot be introduced to the body “by any method of inhalation.”
