Please tell your U.S. Senator and Member of the House of Representatives to vote “yes” on the Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2015 (S-134 & H.R. 525).

Industrial Hemp is … renewable… sustainable… versatile… profitable… critical… and of course, wonderful! Oh yeah, and Criminal.
The U.S. Government considers Industrial Hemp a narcotic Ie. heroin, and cocaine. A few great leaders in Washington have introduced the Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2015 to declassify Industrial Hemp as a controlled substance; they are: Sen, Ron Wyden D. Oregon & Rep. Thomas Massie R-Kentucky.
The Act amends the Controlled Substances Act to exclude industrial hemp from the definition of “marihuana.” Defines “industrial hemp” to mean the plant Cannabis sativa L. and any part of such plant, whether growing or not, with a delta-nine tetrahydrocannabinol concentration of not more than 0.3 percent on a dry weight basis. Deems Cannabis sativa L. to meet that concentration limit if a person grows or processes it for purposes of making industrial hemp in accordance with state law, unless the Attorney General determines that the state law is not reasonably calculated to comply with such definition.
