WHAT WE DO
The American Hemp Campaign, a project of Vote Hemp, is a coalition effort to ensure the U.S. and the respective states have the most thoughtful and sensible laws and regulations governing the production and sale of hemp and hemp products.
The campaign was formed in 2018 to raise awareness about the economic benefits a thriving hemp industry could produce in the U.S. Our first major project has been an advocacy effort to support passage of hemp legislation in Texas during the 2019 legislative session. We also plan to engage in other states and at the federal level, including work to support federal rulemaking at the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Our goal is to provide policymakers, lobbyists, and other stakeholders with the policy guidance, data, and messaging assistance they need to produce the best possible hemp laws.
WHO WE ARE
The American Hemp Campaign is a project of Vote Hemp, one of the nation’s preeminent hemp advocacy organizations, in partnership with New Belgium Brewing and GCH, the company behind Willie Nelson’s hemp and cannabis brands. We also receive assistance from Vicente Sederberg LLP, a national leader on hemp law and policy, and we have retained its affiliated public affairs firm, VS Strategies, whose principals have collectively spent decades enacting and shaping cannabis-related policies and influencing public opinion.
