BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Legislation that will allow the interstate transport of hemp and a hemp-derived extract called CBD through Idaho - where it’s illegal - has been introduced.

The House Ways and Means Committee on Wednesday introduced the bill that would allow the director of the Idaho State Police to issue permits for the interstate transport of hemp and CBD.

The Senate on Monday approved legislation involving hemp that caused some House members to withdraw their support because of the amendments done in the Senate.

Republican Rep. Judy Boyle says the House legislation legalized hemp, but the amendments by the Senate undid that.

Hemp backers say the state needs to pass legislation that conforms with federal law on hemp while maintaining the state’s prohibition on marijuana.
