Hemp History Week Launches Nationwide June 5-11, 2017
Advocates Promote Sustainability Benefits of Organic Hemp, Innovative Hemp Technologies and the Need to Lift Federal Prohibition on Hemp Farming
WASHINGTON, DC – The Hemp Industries Association (HIA) and Vote Hemp launched the 8th annual Hemp History Week, to occur June 5-11, 2017, throughout the country.
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.
