If thirty-six industrialized nations around the globe are producing industrial hemp, why doesn’t the United States allow for hemp’s production as well? In 1970, industrial hemp was conflated with marijuana and deemed illegal by the Controlled Substance Act. The United States is the largest importer of industrial hemp, and it’s time to correct this mistake! The legalization of industrial hemp is one of the most important legislative efforts of our day. Add your name today and show your support for the legalization of industrial hemp. The Industrial Hemp Farming Act (S.134), introduced by Senator Ron Wyden (D-OR), is a legislative effort to bring hemp home to the United States. It would remove industrial hemp from the controlled substances act and give states the opportunity to establish industrial hemp as an agricultural commodity. You already know why legalizing hemp production is so important. Industrial hemp would provide a new agricultural commodity for the American farmer, provide much-needed resources to sustainable industries like textiles and bio-plastics, and help grow our economy from the middle out. Industrial hemp is the non-psychoactive variety of cannabis sativa L, and it’s time for its production to be legalized.The Industrial Hemp Farming Act currently has six co-sponsors – we need your help now to lend a name and a voice in support of this important legislation. Sign our petition today supporting the Industrial Hemp Farming Act and show the overwhelming support for industrial hemp.It’s time to allow industrial hemp to become a domestically produced product.
