Some states are fighting to legalize the production of hemp for industrial purposes, but Nebraska is not one of them.
What you should do really depends on how the hemp got on the property.... If someone in your family was growing it illegally you should probably destroy the evidence ASAP. If you are innocent in the whole thing and just found it that way, inform the DEA and THEY will probably destroy it for you.
It is all unfortunate, IMO. Hemp is such a useful plant, and is legal to grow for the oil and fibers in so many 1st world countries, but not ours!

I guess the main question is what do you want to do when the hemp is gone.
