Petition to Change Definition of Hemp to 1% THC

Sign the Vote Hemp 1% Petition!

Support the AgHS Campaign to Align Federal Legislation and USDA Rulemaking with the Domestic Hemp Industry and efforts from Vote Hemp to achieve a science-based 1 percent definition for hemp.

The current definition of hemp limits the plant to 0.3% THC. This has proven unworkable for the agricultural hemp industry. Many farmers have been and will continue to be forced to destroy their valuable crops based on this arbitrary THC threshold. Furthermore, farmers who exceed 0.5%, despite their best intentions, could be considered criminal by the current THC standards.

Join us in taking action to protect U.S. farmers by siging the petition, and joining the AgHS Campaign!

“I support changing the definition of hemp to allow up to 1% THC in the plant. Many farmers have had their crops destroyed due to the outdated definition of hemp. The hemp industry is creating good jobs in farming and manufacturing and we need to ensure the industry can continue to grow and compete with other countries that allow higher THC levels. I urge Congress to change the definition of hemp now so that no more farmers will lose their crops.” Vote Hemp 1% Petition
