Urge Lawmakers in Maine to Support Hemp!
We recently reported that the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry issued rules that prohibit retailers from selling consumable hemp products unless those products are produced in Maine. The rules became effective December 1, 2019.
There is a bill before the Maine legislature—LD 1747—that would counteract Maine’s new rules. The bill makes clear that CBD may be added to food and that the addition of CBD does not cause a food to become adulterated. It also strengthens Maine’s hemp program. LD 1747 has been postponed, so we need your help in getting it back on the legislative agenda! Please use our portal to encourage state legislators to support LD 1747.
Our portal makes it super easy. Once you input your zip code, the appropriate email or state petition will populate—with your legislators already identified and an editable message prepared. With a simple click of the button, they will hear your voice loud and clear.
Even if you do not hail from the Pine Tree State yourself, please share this page with your friends, colleagues, customers, and social media contacts in Maine. Help us build our Hemp Supporter armies to assist us in these battles, which have a national impact.
