Essentially, in the next couple of weeks I'm looking to take advantage of a few events taking place in DC beginning the first weekend in October.
*I intend to invite as many Representatives and/or their assistants to attend the Hemp Pavilion, to see first hand the economic potential hemp has, and to seriously consider becoming a cosponsor of H.R. 1866 The Industrial Hemp Farming Act. Until there are 100 co-sponsors of this act, no committee hearings for H.R. 1866 will take place.
*The day after the Green Festival is the start of the Hemp Industries Association (HIA) Convention: http://thehia.org where I'm hoping to meet, share ideas, and network with those in the industry.
*Following the convention, on October 13th, the HIA is also going to be having a lobby day. I've been thinking for quite some time about trying to put together something along the lines of a national Industrial Hemp Action Day, and I feel that with the HIA action on this date, this is a great opportunity for Americans who want to see Industrial Hemp cultivation return to American agriculture to get Congress' attention in a big way.
That's how the plan is looking for now. Feel free to share this and/or contact me with any questions or comments.
Hemp's potential is beyond our imagination.
Won't you help me in waking up the Nation?
