    Currently operating under the 2014 Farm Bill, Alabama will transition to its USDA-approved Hemp Plan as of January 1, 2022.

After 80 years of prohibition, it is again legal for licensed Alabama growers and processors to engage in the hemp economy.  On December 12, 2018, Alabama Congress redefined hemp as all parts of the plant less than 0.3% THC, including derivatives, extracts, and cannabinoids.
