While hemp and marijuana products are species of the cannabis plant, hemp is usually distinguished by its lower concentration of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). State legislators have considered several policy issues: the definition of hemp, licensing of producers, regulation and certification of seeds, state commissions, and legal protection of producers. At least 47 states have enacted laws to establish hemp production programs or allow hemp cultivation research.
