About the Episode
Date: Tuesday, May 12th at 3:00pm CT Shawn and Courtney: Co-founders, Hemp for Our Future campaign Shawn Hauser: Vicente Sederberg, LLP, Partner, Chair, Hemp & Cannabinoid Practice Group Courtney N. Moran, LL.M.: Founding Principal, EARTH Law, LLC; Chief Legislative Strategist, Agricultural Hemp Solutions, LLC Title: Hemp for Our Future- National Campaigns Uniting and Advancing the US Hemp Industry Topic: Join us to learn about the AgHS Lobbying Campaign to Align Federal Legislation and USDA Rulemaking with the Domestic Hemp Industry and the Hemp for Our Future Social Initiative Campaign
AgHS Lobbying Campaign
Agricultural Hemp Solutions (AgHS) Chief Legislative Strategist Courtney N. Moran, LL.M. has launched the federal lobbying campaign to secure adoption of rational final USDA Hemp Production Program Rules, and to pass science-based federal legislation that broadens protections for U.S. hemp farmers and businesses. Having participated in the drafting and in the negotiations that led to the inclusion of the Hemp Farming Act language into the 2018 Farm Bill federally legalizing hemp, Courtney will explain how the USDA Interim Final Rules do not reflect legislative intent, are leading to onerous regulation, and putting farmers directly at risk of losing valuable crops. Learn how you can get involved with the Campaign to help change federal policy and set the hemp industry on a solid regulatory path forward.
Hemp for Our Future
Courtney N Moran, LL.M. and Shawn Hauser teamed up with the non-profit organization Friends of Hemp and co-founded the Hemp for Our Future social responsibility campaign. Hemp for Our Future supports the production and donation of hemp-based materials, products, and foods to medical professionals and community organizations helping those impacted by COVID-19. Just like in 1942 when U.S. farmers were called to action through the Hemp for Victory Campaign to bring hemp back into rotation on U.S. soil to help our citizens during WWII, we are calling on the US hemp industry to unite together and take action to again prove the incredible potential of hemp in supporting our country during times of crisis. Join us to learn more about the campaign, donations we are facilitating, and how your business can join the national network of businesses supporting this important social responsibility initiative.
