Currently, individuals and businesses in Minnesota must be licensed to grow and process hemp. The USDA has not approved Minnesota’s state plan for growing hemp, which is why you must obtain a license if you want to grow hemp in Minnesota. Hopefully, after the USDA approves Minnesota’s state plan, hemp production and processing will be uninterrupted by such regulations. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp CrayM 0 Questions 311 Answers 0 Best Answers 655 Points View Profile CrayM 2020-07-12T15:50:20-04:00Added an answer on July 12, 2020 at 3:50 pm Yes, it is.
