Eric Steenstra, President of Vote Hemp has referenced, "To date, 31 states have passed legislation that allows hemp farming per provisions set forth in the 2014 Farm Bill, and the U.S. remains the largest consumer market for hemp products worldwide. We need Congress to pass federal legislation to allow commercial hemp farming nationally, to let our farmers and American businesses take advantage of the robust economic opportunity hemp provides."
