Tuesday May 21 - HEMP PRODUCTS COULD BE BANNED

Senate Bill 237 BANNING HEMP PRODUCTS containing any amount of THC may be voted on by the House on Tuesday May 21st. The bill was reported favorably by the House Administration of Criminal Justice Committee last Tuesday with a 7-5 vote ( see prior news flash for details). If approved by the House, the bill will be forwarded to the Governor for signature. If signed, the HEMP INDUSTRY WILL BE DESTROYED IN LOUISIANA.


HB 952, an industry supported bill, is scheduled to be heard by the Senate Agriculture Committee on Tuesday as well. The meeting starts at 9:00am and is chaired by Senator Stewart Cathey. You may remember that Sen Cathey attempted to BAN hemp products last year. Earlier in the session, the Senate voted 27-9 to approve SB 237 BANNING HEMP PRODUCTS.


IT'S NOT OVER, YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. YOU MUST ACT AND NOT SIT BY AND WATCH.


During the House Criminal Justice Committee meeting, one representative said she had received hundreds of emails. She was going to vote against SB 237 and changed her vote to support it because of the emails. That's what she said in the meeting.


ELECTED OFFICIALS NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU AND HEAR THAT YOU WANT THEM TO VOTE NO ON SENATE BILL 237! Our opposition is working hard and is contacting House & Senate Members to KILL OUR INDUSTRY.


If you haven't done so yet, CLICK ON THE LINK BELOW AND EMAIL YOUR ELECTED OFFICIALS. SHARE THE LINK with your friends & family, ASK THEM TO EMAIL THEIR ELECTED OFFICIALS. It's very easy, enter your name and address and the software sends an email signed by you. The system also allows you to write your own personal email or use the email that we have drafted.


We encourage you to attend the Senate Agriculture Committee Meeting on Tuesday at 9:00am. The committee needs to hear from you that Rep Miller's HB 952 is the answer to their concerns about hemp products. Our opposition will likely be there, the committee needs to hear from our industry.
