A federal judge issued a preliminary injunction last week ordering Indiana to stop enforcing its law that criminalizes the possession of smokable hemp.
Judge Sarah Evans Barker of the Southern District of Indiana wrote in a Sept. 13 ruling that Indiana's law criminalizing the manufacture, finance, delivery and possession of smokable hemp is preempted by federal law.
The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018, signed into law by President Donald Trump on Dec. 20, 2018, removed hemp from the federal list of controlled substances and redefined the plant as an agricultural commodity. It also says states can't pass laws that interfere with the right to transport lawfully produced hemp in interstate commerce.
