June 2015 Hemp News update

Every day, more and more Americans discover the benefits of hemp. This ever-expanding market includes healthy food and body care products, as well as eco-friendly textiles, clothing, auto parts, and building materials. Despite hemp's growing popularity, and the recent Farm Bill legislation that now permits hemp to be grown for research in states with hemp farming laws in place, the Federal policy for hemp farming - created in the 1930's is outdated and currently prevents U.S. farmers from widely growing this nutritious, versatile, and eco-friendly crop.

Federal policy on industrial hemp is beginning to reflect today's reality and ensure a better tomorrow for America's families and farmers, the economy and our planet. The 2014 Farm Bill was a first step, but we need to push Congress to pass legislation in 2015 that will allow commercial hemp farming.
