Wisconsin sources

The WI Dept. of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection has information on the industrial hemp program on their Wisconsin DATCP Industrial Hemp Research Pilot Program website. This page includes FAQs and other information.

Wisconsin statute 961.38 discusses cannabidiol. Read Wisconsin Legislative Council Act Memo: Possession of Cannabidoil (CBD) which affected possession and distribution of CBD and the act memo for 2017 Wisconsin Act 100 which relates to industrial hemp.

Wisconsin statute index listings for "hemp" and "cannabidiol":
The Wisconsin Controlled Substances Board administers sections of chapter 961 of the Wisconsin Statutes.

Federal Sources

The US Department of Agriculture has a page on industrial hemp, which discusses section 7606 of the 2014 Farm Bill. Information on the pending 2018 Farm Bill, H.R. 2 can be found online.
