Jason Amatucci

Jason-Amatucci-HeadshotJason is the Founder and Executive Director of the Virginia Industrial Hemp
Coalition. Just recently in early 2015 the VIHC helped accomplish the important first step of getting industrial hemp legalized in the Commonwealth of Virginia by a vote of 98-0 in the House and 35-3 in the Senate. Those that know the history of the Virginia General Assembly know
this was a great and historic landslide victory. Jason also owns the
Virginia Boxwood Company. The company cares and maintains thousands of large boxwood shrubs throughout Virginia including many historic sites and Universities such as James Madison’s Montpellier and Washington and Lee University. The business is based on organic, sustainable and regenerative principals which translates well to the hemp industry. Jason is a graduate of the University of Georgia (go dawgs!) with a degree in political science and certificate in global studies. Currently
the VIHC has much work ahead of them to get the hemp industry up and running and on proper legal footing in Virginia. Also they will continue to help on the national level to get HR.525 and S.139 passed and signed into law. Jason is honored to be a part of the RMHA Advisory Council and is appreciative to have the opportunity to work with such awesome colleagues to overcome one of the most important political hurdles for our Nation’s prosperous, peaceful and sustainable future.
