The New Jersey Hemp Farming Act was enacted in August 2019. This new legislation complies with the 2018 Farm Bill, which authorized hemp producers to grow and sell hemp for commercial purposes. On October 31, 2019, the USDA published its interim final rules for domestic hemp production in the Federal Register at 7 CFR 990 et seq. The new rules became effective immediately upon publication. Any state seeking primary regulatory authority over hemp production must receive USDA approval.

On December 27, New Jersey was among the first three states to have its Hemp Program approved by the USDA.
