How can I help?

The best way to show legislators and the public that hemp is a great environmental and economic commodity is to buy hemp products! Nothing talks like money. As the market grows, so does general interest.

You can also contact your legislators, educate others and be an ongoing advocate. Contact the HIA for tools and materials, and join the HIA as we continue to expand the hemp market.
