The program will be overseen by the state’s Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry. Fallin’s office says the law allows universities and farmers who contract with them to grow the crop “for research and development.”

The National Conference of State Legislatures says 37 other states have also passed legislation to allow hemp cultivation. Hemp can be used in food, fuel, rope and body products.

Former President Barack Obama signed the federal Agriculture Act in 2014 to allow universities and state agriculture departments to cultivate the plant for limited purposes.
