Hemp legal, now HIA takes on Facebook censors

Times Square, New York City, is the latest battle ground in the return of industrial hemp to the USA.

The hemp industry has forced the DEA to back away from hempseed foods and to let Kentucky and other states grow low-THC cannabis for industrial use. It got hemp legalized through the Farm Bill.


Executive Director Colleen Keahey Lanier announced May 21 that the HIA launched the national campaign against a Facebook and Instagram ban on promotion and marketing of industrial hemp. Hoban Law Group, Bluebird Botanicals and Bish Enterprises are also backing the effort.
