NASDA Policy Statement 2013
NASDA supports revisions to the federal rules and regulations authorizing commercial production of industrial hemp.
NASDA urges the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) to collaboratively develop and adopt an official definition of industrial hemp that comports with definitions currently used by countries producing hemp. NASDA also urges Congress to statutorily distinguish between industrial hemp and marijuana and to direct the DEA to revise its policies to allow USDA to establish a regulatory program that allows the development of domestic industrial hemp production by American farmers and manufacturers.
NASDA Policy Statements updated with amendments passed during the 2013 Winter Policy Conference. Updated February 25, 2013
