2014 | Hemp seeds released; delivered to department of agriculture

Updated: Jan 19, 2019

After being detained by federal officials for almost two weeks, the shipment of hemp seeds intended for hemp pilot projects was delivered to Kentucky's Agriculture Department on May 23, 2015. The seed from Italy arrived on a UPS truck Friday at the department's office in Frankfort.

The seeds were sprung from confinement after federal drug officials approved a permit on Thursday, May 22, ending the standoff. The state agriculture department sued the federal government after the shipment was stopped by U.S. Customs in Louisville on May 13.
