myc-Once more legalization happens - and a lot less "decriminalization" ..........then we'll be in safe territory. Low criminal priority is not exemption from prosecution.
Decriminalization is not the same as legalization. Other parties could decide to exercise their "duty" to enforce the law - whether it was deemed a low-priority offense or not. It's a gamble.
The Farm Bill passed in 2018 was done by the Feds for hemp.
They have allowed each state to set any other regulations if any.
This is directly quoted from the CBP info center home page. But as ya'll said who knows what overzealous john law can or will do, legal or no.
Importing hemp seeds into the U.S.
Can I import hemp products or hemp seeds into the United States?
Hemp seeds can be imported into the United States. The Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018 (The 2018 Farm Bill) removed hemp and hemp seeds from the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) schedule of Controlled Substances. This action removed hemp and hemp seeds from DEA authority for products containing tetrahydrocannabinols (THC) levels not greater than 0.3 percent. Therefore, DEA no longer has authority to require hemp seed permits for import purposes.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulates the importation of all seeds for planting to ensure safe agricultural trade. Under this authority, USDA is providing an alternative way for the safe importation of hemp seeds into the United States.
Federal law prohibits human consumption and possession of schedule I controlled substances. Products containing THC, the hallucinogenic substance in marijuana, are illegal to import. Products that do not cause THC to enter the human body are therefore legal products.
Importation of Hemp Seeds from Canada
Hemp seeds can be imported into the United States from Canada if accompanied by either: 1.) a phytosanitary certification from Canada’s national plant protection organization to verify the origin of the seeds and confirm that no plant pests are detected; or 2.) a Federal Seed Analysis Certificate (SAC, PPQ Form 925) for hemp seeds grown in Canada.
Importation of Hemp Seeds from Countries other than Canada
Hemp seeds may be imported into the United States from countries other than Canada if accompanied by: 1.) a phytosanitary certificate from the exporting country’s national plant protection organization to verify the origin of the seeds and confirm that no plant pests are detected.
Hemp seed shipments may be inspected upon arrival at the first port of entry by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to ensure USDA regulations are met, including certification and freedom from plant pests.
