We now have the list of congressional members that will be sitting on the conference committee for the 2018 Farm Bill. The list looks really good for hemp. Most notably Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Congressman James Comer are on the committee.
It is still very important that we make our voices heard with all the members of this committee. Not only do we need to make sure the hemp legislation stays in the final version of the farm bill – but we need to do everything we can to remove the misguided amendment that prevents anyone with a felony drug offense from obtaining a license to grow hemp.
Please review the list below and see if any of your legislators are on the list. If they are it is imperative that you contact them. Constituent voices always have the most impact. If you don’t have a legislator on the list, contact them anyway. Collectively we can get hemp legalization over the finish line AND remove the discriminatory amendment!
