ACTION ALERT: Great Hemp Bill Introduced in Texas!
Yesterday afternoon, we reported the troubling news that Ft. Worth prosecutors were threatening to arrest CBD users. Just a few hours later, State Rep. Tracy King introduced House Bill 1325 — relying on the Roundtable’s model legislation — that would solve the issue and establish a full hemp program in the Lone Star State. Rep. King’s bill would allow Texas to join 41 other states in hemp cultivation, bring the state into full compliance with the 2018 Farm Bill, and clarify beyond any doubt that hemp products such as CBD could be sold at retail. Now it’s more important than ever that ALL of our Hemp Supporters in Texas have their day. Please use our portal to encourage your legislators to support HB1325. You’ll just need to fill out the online form, personalize our prepared message, and press send- It’s that simple! If you don’t live in Texas, please share this with everyone you know who does, especially in your social media networks. Establishing a hemp program in Texas is a big step toward reaching our goal of ensuring that hemp and hemp products are legal in all 50 states. When we all come together, we win!
