How can three hardworking truck drivers be prosecuted for marijuana trafficking for just hauling hemp that federal law says is perfectly legal to transport across Idaho? Section 10114(b) of the federal 2018 Farm Bill (the federal law legalizing hemp) says: “Transportation of hemp and hemp products. - No state … shall prohibit the transportation or shipment of hemp or hemp products produced in accordance with [the provisions 2018 Farm Bill] through the state...” Folks thought that was pretty clear until Idaho arrested these truck drivers.
