The   Evolving Law and Regulation of Industrial Hemp in the
United   States

      INTRODUCTION

            This  Article and its inclusion in this Journal are remarkably
      aligned. Our vehicle - the Journal of Animal and Environmental Law -
      is published at the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law, just
      seventy miles from our practice in Lexington, Kentucky. And Kentucky,
      frankly perhaps more than any other state, has promoted and pioneered
      the modern industrial hemp movement   - the focus of this Article. As the
      volume  in which this Article appears supports the Journal of Animal
      and  Environmental  Law's  inaugural symposium;   industrial hemp is
      experiencing an inauguration of its own - into a clearer and friendlier
      legal landscape. This Article's appearance in this particular volume of
      this particular Journal is appropriate, and  we  are delighted to be
      included.

            This  Article addresses the legal development   of the modern
      industrial hemp  movement   in the United States. Part I revisits the
      history of industrial hemp in the United States. Part II summarizes the
      legal permissions related to industrial hemp and its derivative products,
      including laws  authorizing state pilot projects for the growth  and
      cultivation of industrial hemp.  Part III identifies niche legal and
      business  considerations when  advising clients on industrial hemp.
      Finally, Part IV identifies areas of uncertainties in the industrial hemp
      industry and proposes legislative and policy cures.
