Hemp History Week 2017 Begins Today

Today marks the start of the 8th annual Hemp History Week.

The Hemp Industries Association (HIA) and Vote Hemp launched the 8th annual Hemp History Week today throughout the country, which will run until June 11th.  As event organizers advocate for full federal legalization of industrial hemp farming this Spring, Hemp History Week raises awareness about the environmental sustainability, health benefits, regenerative agriculture potential, and new technological applications of industrial hemp.

This year’s campaign theme, Breaking Ground, focuses on new advances in hemp agronomy research; innovative, breakthrough product applications of hemp; and the need to break new ground in federal legislation efforts to expand hemp farming legalization to farmers and communities in sovereign tribal lands across America.
