Much work still needs to be done with the general public, farmers and our elected officials about the nutritional, industrial, environmental and medicinal benefits of hemp. As laws change, research is conducted and commercialization begins, sharing information will be vital to ensure the hemp industry thrives. NHA is committed to advancing this awareness and knowledge.
NHA’s main priority is the passage of comprehensive hemp legislation on a federal level. We also are here to help individual states with their hemp legislation. Stay tuned for important updates of how you can help pass HR3550, The 2017 Industrial Hemp Act!
