  • Biden's USDA Transition Team Signals Good News For Hemp

There is good news coming from President-elect Joe Biden's team, suggesting strong support for the hemp industry under a Biden-Harris administration.

The Biden administration recently named Robert Bonnie, USDA’s Under Secretary for Natural Resources and Environment in the Obama administration, to lead efforts to implement agency policies, set management agendas, and select personnel. This announcement was welcome news to hemp advocates who found Bonnie supportive of hemp during previous discussions.

Bonnie “was very helpful to the hemp industry” during the Obama administration, according to Jonathan Miller, general counsel for industry association Hemp Roundtable.

As undersecretary, Bonnie met several times with hemp representatives to discuss critical issues of concern to the industry, Miller adds. While it is hard to say what this will mean during the Biden administration, he says, “what we do already know is that the hemp industry will get a fair hearing during the transition process.”
