Vote Hemp on Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2009


Artist Statement:

Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2009

"Vote Hemp is a national, single-issue, non-profit advocacy group founded in 2000 by members of the hemp industry to remove barriers to industrial hemp farming in the U.S. through education, legislation and advocacy. We work to build grassroots support for hemp through voter education, registration and mobilization, as well as defend against any new laws, regulations or policies that would prohibit or restrict hemp trade.

Industrial hemp is the non-psychoactive, low-THC, oilseed and fiber varieties of the Cannabis sativa plant. Hemp has absolutely no use as a recreational drug."

For more on industrial hemp uses, visit the USA Hemp Museum,  and check out the HEMP FOR VICTORY books you'll find there.

I've been intrigued by the farming aspects of hemp for some years now. It's great to hear people are getting things accomplished. Um but the vid is no longer available. You have a lot of videos that are no longer functioning. I know you probably don't care about a year old post, but the information is fascinating. Tractors for the win lol.
