New Federal Bill Could Allow Small Growers to Sell Over State Lines

October 6, 2022 ·

WASHINGTON D.C. – Small-scale and legacy cultivators stand to benefit immensely from the “Small and Homestead Independent Producers (SHIP) Act,” which would allow small cannabis growers to sell and ship products directly to consumers across state lines. The bill, filed in mid-September by Rep. Jared Huffman (D-CA) and Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR), is intended to support small growers across the country struggling to compete against large corporations, once cannabis is federally legalized.

“Under my bill, folks in our state will be able to ship their products straight to consumers when the antiquated federal prohibition on cannabis is finally repealed,” Huffman said in a statement. “As large commercial cannabis operations squeeze out local producers from the market, this legislation is critical for farmers to survive and expand their small businesses. We cannot leave our smallest family farmers behind under full legalization.” (mgmagazine.com) Full Article
