WVC 19 - 12 E- 2
The Legislature finds that the development and use of
industrial hemp can serve to improve the state's economy and
agricultural vitality and that the production of industrial hemp
can be regulated so as not to interfere with the strict regulation
of controlled substances in this state. The purpose of the
industrial hemp development act is to promote the economy and
agriculture by permitting the development of a regulated industrial
hemp industry while maintaining strict control of marijuana.
