   seed production before importing any non-sterilized industrial hemp         
   seeds capable of germination into the State. Requires these universi-       
   ties to report their findings and recommendations to the General

   authorized for the purposes of the provisions concerning the studies,       
   from the definition of "cannabis" under the Cannabis Control Act and        
   under the Cannabis and Controlled Substances Tort Claims Act.               
   Effective immediately.
