Bill Text: Industrial Hemp Industrial hemp is an agricultural crop with a rich history in Wisconsin. This commodity was primarily used in the production of rope, textiles and paper during the early 20th century. Currently, United States manufacturers import nearly $0.5 billion of industrial hemp annually. Allowing this crop to grow in Wisconsin has the potential to expand our agricultural sector, create new manufacturing and tech opportunities, and ultimately produce new jobs and tax revenue.
