Hemp Farming Act of 2018: Call to Action

Join AGHS and Vote Hemp in our efforts to pass the Hemp Farming Act of 2018.

The Hemp Farming Act of 2018 removes hemp from the Controlled Substances Act, establishing hemp as an agricultural commodity and eliminating current barriers that hemp farmers and processors face including access to water rights and banking. With U.S. Department of Agriculture general regulatory oversight, states and tribes are given primary regulatory authority over production under approved State/Tribal Plans. The bill also provides eligibility for USDA research funding and federal crop insurance.

Vote Hemp has launched an advocacy tool to see activity on the campaign in real time! Click here to watch our progress:
