WHERE WE'RE GOING

Our Goals

Administrative

Hemp production is a young industry in South Carolina. We believe that with the right administrative support, the industry can grow strong and healthy.

ACTIONS

  • Assist in quantifying and streamlining reports to the USDA.
  • Work with farmers to determine an equitable and profitable payment structure for crops.

Legislative

While hemp and marijuana come from the same plant, hemp has far less THC. Medicinal and recreational marijuana typically has THC levels between 10 and 27 percent. We believe the current 0.3-percent THC threshold on hemp production should be raised.

ACTIONS

  • Advocate for an increase in the federal THC threshold for hemp to 1 percent.
  • Support establishing hemp processing plants in South Carolina and connect farmers to this infrastructure.

Education

National and state laws governing hemp and marijuana have changed rapidly over the last five to 10 years. We will strive to keep all stakeholders up-to-date on the latest rules, regulations, and industry trends.

ACTIONS

  • Act as a clearinghouse of information for what farmers, processors, manufacturers and retailers need to know.
  • Educate law enforcement on the constantly changing state and federal laws and regulations.
