Bill Description: House Bill 95 would clarify that animal remedies that include ingredients from industrial hemp are not considered “adulterated.”
Does it give government any new, additional, or expanded power to prohibit, restrict, or regulate activities in the free market? Conversely, does it eliminate or reduce government intervention in the market?
House Bill 95 would amend Section 25-2703, Idaho Code, which is the definitions section for Idaho's commercial feed law. Subsection 3(f) says that "Animal remedies when not adulterated within the meaning of section 25-2707, Idaho Code" are not defined as commercial feed. [Section 25-2707, Idaho Code, is schedule II of Idaho's controlled substances law.]
House Bill 95 would add the clarification that "Animal remedies for pets, specialty pets, and equines that include ingredients from industrial hemp as defined in section 22-1703, Idaho Code, and as defined in section 37-2705(d)(27), Idaho Code, are not considered adulterated."
This change should prevent anyone from incorrectly characterizing animal remedies that include ingredients derived from industrial hemp.
