The Hemp Industries Association (HIA) and Vote Hemp are organizing the sixth annual Hemp History Week, which will be held June 1-7, 2015.

Encouraged by federal support in Congress, with the Industrial Hemp Farming Act recently introduced in both the House and Senate in January 2015, the campaign’s theme Sow the Seed will highlight spring plantings in states that have passed legislation to allow industrial hemp farming, and encourage consumers to participate in the Take Action campaign to garner support among legislators for hemp farming throughout all 50 states.

Across the country, over 1,100 events will bring documentary film screenings, cooking demonstrations, retail promotions, educational outreach, spring plantings and hemp home building courses to the public, catalyzing movement on the issue of lifting the federal ban on industrial hemp farming.

Two hemp bills have bill introduced in Texas, including one which legalizes hemp for research purposes by institutions of higher education, and another which will establish a program for regulated agricultural production of hemp by farmers.
