New York State Expands Industrial Hemp Use with New Law
New York state expands industrial cannabis use, including textiles and concrete, to boost manufacturing and agriculture.

Legislators in the state of New York along the Hudson River have passed new legislation to expand the use of industrial marijuana in the state. The bill was signed into law by Governor Kathy Hochul.

Senator Michelle Hinchey's bill will now direct several national groups to develop a plan to expand the use of industrial hemp in manufacturing and construction industries. This includes the use of hemp textiles, packaging, and hemp concrete for building.

Hinchey stated that marijuana is the material of the future, which could make the state a leading producer and aid many farmers in the region.
