Now that industrial hemp is federally legal, this new industry needs government help! Please go to the Vote Hemp Website and esign their letter to Congress.
After Years of unjust prohibition, we can hardly believe it but farmers all across America have grown, harvested and minimally processed their first industrial hemp crop in well over a generation. Finally, our farmers get to participate in the well over 1 Billion in annual sales of hemp products sold in the U.S last year.
Yippy, time to celebrate! Right? Yes, but only for a moment because many of those wide eyed farmers are quickly finding out that for such a simple plant, (a weed, really), things can get complicated and extremely expensive very quickly. To be profitable, farmers will need to become their own processors or at least contract with processors for reasonable prices. Each community needs it's own multi purpose processing facility that can process, not just the flower heads for CBD, but the stalks for our paper and plastic products as well.
