U.S. Hemp Roundtable
Launched in early 2017, the U.S. Hemp Roundtable is a coalition of over dozens of hemp companies – representing every link of the product chain, from seed to sale – and all of the industry’s major national grassroots organizations.
We have already achieved our primary mission: securing passage of bi-partisan legislation in the U.S. Congress that established hemp federally as an agricultural commodity, permanently removing it from regulation as a controlled substance. Our efforts included an aggressive, targeted, grass-tops lobbying campaign that brought leading farmers and business executives to Washington, with complimentary grassroots efforts that resulted in hundreds of thousands of targeted emails sent to Members of Congress.
The battle for full legalization, however, is not over. Some states have not yet joined the cause, and there are continued fears of over-regulation by local and federal agencies.
In order ensure the long term viability of the industry – the Roundtable’s mission includes:
- Focused lobbying efforts in state capitols to fully legalize hemp and popular hemp-derived products like cannabidiol (CBD)
- Facilitating information exchange with law enforcement and federal agency officials
- Continued long-term legislative advocacy on other major policy issues, remaining vigilant against potential attempts of rival industries to halt hemp’s progress
- Coordination with the US Hemp Authority, whose certification program promotes high standards, best practices and self-regulation, providing confidence to consumers that hemp products are safe and to law enforcement that they are legal
