Being election day I felt this a good day to reiterate the need to join the cause. I like what Vote Hemp said in their newsletter today:
We are very pleased to report that H.R. 1831, the Industrial Hemp Farming Act, gained three new cosponsors last month: Rep. Collin Peterson (D-MN 7th District), Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-OR 5th District) and Rep. Peter Welch (D-VT At Large).
All three are members of the House Agriculture Committee and Rep. Peterson is the ranking Democrat on the committee. Rep. Peterson and Rep. Schrader are also members of the Blue Dog Coalition, and they are the first Blue Dogs to cosponsor a hemp farming bill. We would not have been able to do this without your support!
