Hemp History Week – Hemp Farming Act of 2011

From Rural Vermont

It is Hemp History Week and an urgent and critical need for hemp action has just arisen, we need to request your help NOW!! Please call Rep. Peter Welch and let him know that he should become an original cosponsor of the Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2011, which will be introduced next week.  You can find a letter from Rep. Ron Paul and Rep. Barney Frank urging support of this Act

here: http://www.votehemp.com/paul_dear_colleague_3.html. In short, the Act would repeal a provision of federal law that prohibits farmers from growing industrial hemp, and would therefore set Vermont up to be one of the first states to get hemp seeds in the ground (since it has already been legalized here)!  Rep. Welch must become an original cosponsor this week, so please call his office TODAY at (202) 225-4115, and tell Rep. Welch to become an original cosponsor of the Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2011.  Thanks for your work and support on this important agricultural issue!
