H.R. 1866-The Industrial Hemp Farming Act

H.R. 1866 is perhaps the most straight-forward Act currently in Congress and deserves the support of all Americans. It would reflect science, by making a clear distinction between hemp and marijuana; and also grant each state the power to regulate hemp cultivation within their borders. We the People of the United States of America must not allow Congress to continue preventing our farmers from cultivating this crop that help can heal our environment and stimulate the expansion of the green economy like nothing else out there.

I ask you to please do your part by using this link to let your Representative know that you want them to co-sponsor this bill and join the other 18 Representatives who have already done so. Without more co-sponsors this bill is not likely to get the committee hearings that it deserves. I know from the time I recently spent in Washington, D.C. that without more constituents like yourself contacting their Representatives, they will continue standing on the sidelines and perpetuating the flawed federal hemp policies of the last 70 years, a course of action that we can not afford.

In solidarity for a sustainable future-David
