Tell Congress to support hemp in the Farm Bill!

The Farm Bill Conference Committee is meeting now to agree on a final version of the Farm Bill. The Senate version of the Farm Bill includes language from the Hemp Farming Act of 2018 (S. 2667) which legalizes hemp and allows it to be regulated by states under the supervision of USDA. The bill finally removes DEA from its current oversight role. It ensures that native American tribes are included, funds hemp research, funds a hemp seed bank and authorizes hemp crop insurance. However, there was a last minute amendment added which bans convicted drug felons from farming or processing hemp. 

Please take action now and ask the Conference Committee members to support hemp farming in Farm Bill but ask them to remove the felon ban. 

Please write Congress and ask them to support hemp in the Farm Bill but oppose the felon ban.
