Commissioner Tyler Harper Issues Statement in Support of Consumable Hemp Product Legislation

Atlanta, Ga - Today, Georgia Agriculture Commissioner Tyler Harper issued the following statement on the introduction of S.B. 437 and H.B. 1127.

“I’m grateful for the introduction of S.B. 437 and H.B. 1127 by Senator Randy Robertson (SD-29) and Representative Clay Pirkle (HD-169),” said Georgia Agriculture Commissioner Tyler Harper.  “The Georgia Department of Agriculture fully supports the passage of these commonsense, bipartisan public safety and consumer protection measures related to consumable hemp products in Georgia.
