Leaders in the Industrial Hemp community are invited to host a booth to showcase their product and the value their business provides to the economy. This unique event will bring together policy makers and business leaders in industrial hemp. We hope that by demonstrating the varied uses of industrial hemp as well as showing the diverse economic benefit the industry has to offer, more legislators will help propel legalization of industrial hemp federally.
