Hemp growers in New York will be able to begin planting marijuana starting this spring under a provisional license granted to them by the state, with an eye toward the upcoming opening of the adult market for recreational use of the plant.

Gov. Kathy Hochul signed legislation Tuesday that created a new conditional license for marijuana cultivation, opening the door for hemp farmers to apply and begin cultivation soon, according to a release.

The Office of Cannabis Management (OCM) is going to create a license application process and open the program as soon as possible, says the release.

The law says temporarily licensed cannabis cultivators must meet certain requirements, which include safe, sustainable and environmentally friendly cultivation practices, participation in a social equity mentoring program and an agreement with a labor organization.

In March 2021, New York became the 15th state to adopt the measure, which will allow adults 21 and older to possess up to 3 ounces of marijuana inside or outside their homes, always for personal consumption. In addition, they will be able to buy and grow up to 6 plants, 3 that have matured and 3 that are growing.

They will also be able to smoke it in places where cigarette use is allowed as well as to give quantities of the weed to other adults 21 years of age or older, as long as there is no economic compensation.

According to the law signed today, with this temporary permit farmers will be able to grow the plant outdoors or in a greenhouse for up to two years from the issuance of the license.

It will also allow them to manufacture and distribute cannabis flower products without having a processor or distributor license, until June 1, 2023.
