We love hemp and here’s why:

It is a plant that has over 60,000 uses. A plant that has been used for over 10,000 years . A plant that could replace chemical medicine. A plant that can reduce deforestation and habitat destruction of the planet. A plant that can alleviate climate change. And no it is not marijuana, you could die from smoking hemp.

Vote Hemp in the USA

Up until recently hemp was illegal to grow in the US since the 1930s. In December 2018 Trump passed the Farm Bill changing the status of hemp, placing it under USDA control and out of the Controlled Substances Act that previously restricted its use and farming.
So join the NGO: Vote Hemp, fighting in the name of hemp. Educating legislators, advocating for hemp laws, defending against policies that restrict commerce and taking action to legalise hemp farming.
