    Guest #1: Ben Broz, Legislative Liaison of Vote Hemp

    congressman-thomas-massie-and-ben-drozVote Hemp is a national, single-issue, non-profit advocacy group founded in 2000 by members of the hemp industry to remove barriers to industrial hemp farming in the U.S. through education, legislation and advocacy. We work to build grassroots support for hemp through voter education, registration and mobilization, as well as defend against any new laws, regulations or policies that would prohibit or restrict hemp trade. Industrial hemp is the non-psychoactive, low-THC, oilseed and fiber varieties of the Cannabis sativa plant. Hemp has absolutely no use as a recreational drug.

     

    Guest #2: Casper Leitch, Founder Time 4 Hemp Global Cannabis Network

    Host of the Time 4 Hemp Live Show

    Casper Leitch got involved in the Hemp Movement in 1990 and launched the cable television series ‘TIME 4 HEMP’ on January 5, 1991.

    It was the first TV series in the history of broadcasting to focus strictly on the topic of cannabis, giving Casper the dubious honor of being The Father Of Marijuana Television.

    He was a participant in the U.S. Government Funded  ’UCLA Smoked Marijuana Study’ headed by Dr. Donald Tashkin and is the first person in the world to have filmed footage of themselves smoking legal marijuana in a Government funded lab.

    Now in its fifth year, Hemp History Week is a nation-wide education campaign and marketing program that seeks to renew strong support for hemp farming in the U.S. while raising awareness about the benefits of hemp products. The 5th Annual campaign will include grass-roots events across the country, nationwide retail promotions, and a national restaurant program.

    HHW 2014What is Hemp History Week? The 5th Annual Hemp History Week: June 2-8, 2014 It’s Time to Grow 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 But despite hemp’s growing popularity, an outdated and misguided Federal policy – created in the 1930s – currently prevents U.S. farmers from growing this nutritious, versatile, and eco-friendly crop.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.

    Mark your calendars for the 5th Annual

    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!
