50 years later, Wisconsin farmers are back in the hemp business. WAOW.

The legalization of this plant can be a little confusing. Using the word "hemp" can throw you. Hemp doesn’t have the same levels of THC, that marijuana does. So...growing hemp in Wisconsin DOESN'T mean that Wisconsin is going to be this huge pot state.

“This is really beneficial for the entire state, particularly our ag industry. I think you’re gonna see in the next five to ten years Wisconsin is going to once again be a national leader in this crop.” - State Senator Testin

This law put into place has strict rules about mixing in marijuana into the fields that are growing the hemp. Good luck with that one people.
