Mark your calendars for the 5th Annual Hemp History Week - June 2-8, 2014. It's Time to Grow.

Hemp History Week 2014

Every day, more and more Americans discover the benefits of hemp. This ever-expanding market includes healthy food and body care products, as well as eco-friendly textiles, clothing, auto parts, and building materials. But despite hemp's growing popularity, an outdated and misguided Federal policy - created in the 1930s - currently prevents U.S. farmers from growing this nutritious, versatile, and eco-friendly crop.

It is time for Federal policy on industrial hemp to reflect today's reality and ensure a better tomorrow for America's families and farmers, the economy and our planet. It's Time to Grow!

The 4th Annual Hemp History Week was a huge success with over 880 events held nation-wide!

The Hemp Industries Association (HIA) is a non-profit trade group representing hemp companies, researchers and supporters. We are at the forefront of the drive for fair and equal treatment of industrial hemp. Since 1992, the HIA has been dedicated to education, industry development, and the accelerated expansion of hemp world market supply and demand.

The hemp industry has positioned itself over the past decade to once again become a major global economic force in the 21st century. Hemp is one of
our planet's most important natural resources, and we advocate using it to its full potential.
