Hemp is on the mind of the new acting Director of Illinois Ag. John Sullivan is set to take over an agency that is looking at or currently regulating some unique crops.
The IDOA is a regulator of medical marijuana and soon to be involved in setting the rules for growing industrial hemp. He wants producers to have plenty of choices when it comes to growing the crop.
Sullivan also wants to see what IDOA and the state can to about boosting rural broadband speeds.
