On Thursday, May 11, 2000 the Vermont House joined the Senate in the passage of JRS098: “Urging US DEA and US Congress to reconsider Federal policies that restrict the cultivation and marketing of industrial hemp and related products.”
The Resolution was submitted to the Senate Agricultural committee on March 29, by the Vermont Hemp Industries Association and sponsored by VT Senators Elizabeth Ready and Vincent Illuzzi. It will now be sent to the Vermont Congressional Delegation in Washington and entered into the Federal record along with copies issued to the DEA, USDA and to President Clinton.

The Vermont Hemp Industries Association is the emerging coalition of businesses, farms, policy makers and citizens whose goal is to stimulate the public debate and invigorate the domestic hemp industry.
