The Virginia Industrial Hemp Coalition’s goal is simple. We seek to remove the legal barriers that now exist so that farmers can grow and harvest Industrial Hemp here in the Commonwealth of Virginia. This wonderful natural resource will provide many needed jobs for the Commonwealth while at the same time help save our forests, create tax revenue, and provide new (which used to be old before prohibition) options for resources. Hemp has various practical natural resources possibilities like paper products, roping, building materials, clothing, textiles, seed oils that run diesel engines, and food for livestock and humans among many other uses. Believe it or not you could be jailed in Colonial Virginia for refusing to grow Hemp from 1763 to 1769. And in fact it is historically documented that George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin and other founding fathers not only grew Hemp, but widely promoted it for the health and wealth of the burgeoning new republic.
It is important to understand that Industrial Hemp is not marijuana. It cannot be smoked or made into a drug. It only has a minute amount of THC (the active component in marijuana) in the plant and any bud producing marijuana grown within miles of it will cross pollinate turning it into Hemp, therefore losing its THC. So the argument that growing Hemp will allow marijuana to flourish does not hold up to scrutiny. In fact it would eradicate it growing outdoors due to all the cross pollination. So there really isn’t any sane argument out there as to why we are not creating jobs, saving forests, and providing a bounty of natural resources right here in Virginia. Being in the Coalition is simple: just pledge to help us in our goal of passing legislation which will allow farmers to do what they do best, create jobs and resources for our community. Please visit our website if you would like to donate to the cause which will help pay for promotional expenses in our education campaign and our membership drive, but we would most importantly love to have your time and support. We all are on this journey in this life, on this planet together. Let’s accomplish something that makes a real lasting positive change for our generation and more importantly the ones to follow. Please accept my invitation to join our Coalition.
Sign the VIHC Petition: We (VIHC) hereby petition the General Assembly and Governor Terry McAuliffe to pass legislation that licenses and regulates the production of Industrial Hemp as an industrial and agricultural commodity.
