Every five years in the United States we have the opportunity to have a national discussion over priorities in the Farm Bill. The United States Congress is currently debating the legislation and taking action what our national nutrition, conservation, crop insurance and farm subsidy programs will look like over the next five years. We have a unique opportunity to encourage Congress to add the legalization of Industrial Hemp to the current language. It is imperative that Congress take action now. Industrial Hemp products represent a $400 million industry today, yet American farmers are prohibited from growing this "crop of our Founding Fathers". Demand that Congress take action now.
