Ben's Message from The Front
Hemp History Week a Great Success!
Thanks to everyone that helped make Hemp History Week a success. In our first ever celebration on this scale, there were nearly 200 events nationwide, held and organized primarily by volunteers. Several retail stores also participated by offering product tastings and special deals.
If you weren't a part of it this year, we're already starting to plan for next year! Visit Hemphistoryweek.com for more information.
Celebrate Hemp History Week, May 17-23
When I learned to type, there was a standard practice sentence we were taught to use: "Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country." As we plan for Hemp History Week, which will take place across our country May 17-23, I cannot help but remember these words. As a joint project of Vote Hemp and the Hemp Industries Association, America's leading hemp advocacy organizations, Hemp History Week is looking for patriotic Americans to anchor and organize events in their hometown as part of a national grassroots, media and public education campaign.
We hope to collect at least 50,000 signed post cards urging President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder asking them to end the status quo and let farmers grow versatile and profitable industrial hemp. Hemp History Week wants you to sign up ASAP to be contacted by our coordinators to begin planning for local Town Hall meetings to present historical data about hemp farming in your area prior to its prohibition.
You will be connected to other like minded hemp advocates who will plan the events with you and help get the word out its time for change and you will receive coupons for hemp products as a thank you for being part of this historic movement to resume hemp farming in the U.S.
Save the Date: May 17 - 23 is Hemp History Week!
