A certified seed won't free up hemp farmers from the DEA completely. Colorado farmers who use the CDA-approved seed won't need to go through the DEA to get them like they must for foreign seeds, but interstate commerce is still a gray area. Sinning says the CDA is taking a middle ground on whether or not the certified seeds and the products they produce can cross state lines. Although the CDA is warning famers of the plant's federal illegality, the department can't stop them from transporting it.
