Kentucky hemp application portal now open

From Lisa Tolliver

Frankfort, KY - The window to apply for the Kentucky Department of Agriculture's 2023 hemp licensing program is now open, Agriculture Commissioner Dr. Ryan Quarles has announced.

"Regulatory inaction toward cannabinoids by the Food and Drug Administration continues to hamper the nation's hemp industry," Commissioner Quarles said. "As we enter the 10th growing season, we still believe this could one day be a valuable crop for Kentucky farmers, but we also encourage all hemp growers and processors to carefully consider all of the factors in this industry."

The Kentucky Department of Agriculture (KDA), which administers Kentucky's hemp licensing program, is hosting an online application portal on its hemp webpage, kyagr.com/hemp. Grower applications, including renewals, must be submitted by March 15, 2023. New processor/handler applications may be submitted year-round. Annual processor/handler license renewals must be submitted by Dec. 31.

From Nancy Royden, LRC

Frankfort, KY - Members of the Interim Joint Committee on Health, Welfare, and Family Services on Tuesday heard from advocates of reducing patient costs through rebate reform.

Before patients can purchase medications, insurers and pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) negotiate prices with pharmaceutical companies. Those companies provide rebates to reduce the total costs for many medications, according to the Diabetes Patient Advocacy Coalition, which is part of the Patient Pocket Protector Coalition.

A representative of the Patient Pocket Protector Coalition, George Huntley, told legislators at Tuesday's meeting that the savings are not usually passed on to consumers.
