Urge legislators to oppose SB 495, a bill that would ban out-of-state products in Louisiana

SB 495 must be defeated. The bill requires that hemp products sold at retail be distributed by a Consumable Food Manufacturing Distributor (CFMD). This restriction will effectively ban out-of-state products, since a CFMD must have a licensed facility in Louisiana. The bill also bans CBD and full-spectrum products by prohibiting consumable hemp products from containing any THC.

Please use our State Action Center to urge lawmakers to oppose the bill. Our technology makes it super easy. Once you input your zip code, the appropriate email or state petition will populate—with your legislators’ office already identified and an editable message prepared. With a simple click of the button, lawmakers will hear your voice loud and clear.

Even if you aren’t a Louisiana resident or business, please share this page with your friends, colleagues, customers, and social media contacts in the state. Help us build our Hemp Supporter armies to assist us in these battles, which have a national impact.
