‘Hemp is Legal’ Challenges Facebook Ad Policy

Nonprofit trade group Hemp Industries Association, has partnered with cannabis industry stakeholders Hoban Law Group, CBD product company Bluebird Botanicals, and farm supplier Bish Enterprises to launch “Hemp is Legal” campaign addressing social media platform Facebook’s current policy of prohibiting hemp promotion and advertising on both Facebook and Instagram.

“With the passage of the Farm Bill, it seemed there would be a new dawn for stakeholders of the hemp industries absolving them from confusion over whether hemp is a federally controlled substance–it’s not,” HIA Executive Director Colleen Keahey Lanier said in a press release.
