Vote Hemp has been making a positive impact since 2000

Vote Hemp is the longest running grass roots 501 (c)4 non-profit in the hemp industry. We have been operating since 2000 lobbying legislators both on a federal level and a state level while educating advocates throughout the world. Our longevity and experience has set the standards for grass roots advocacy around hemp. Vote Hemp’s headquarters in D.C. has allowed us to spearhead the push in Washington to implement permanent hemp legislation. Our grass roots efforts have been focused around American farmers once again legally being able to grow hemp on American soil. The Federal Farm Bill of 2014 was a huge win for our grass roots advocacy movement.
