Despite the recent passage of the 2018 Farm Bill removing hemp and hemp products from the purview of the Controlled Substances Act, the good folks at Facebook apparently didn’t get the memo. The social media giant turned its attention away from Russian hackers to shut down at least a handful of hemp company Facebook pages in a number of states. Katie Moyer of Kentucky Hemp Works fought back with her own social media campaign, including a funny parody site, and Facebook mysteriously and quietly restored her company page within a few days. Still others remain under the unexplained Facebook ban. Hemp Supporters are encouraged to keep up social media efforts to shine a light on corporate misbehavior.
