Ask him to become an original cosponsor of the Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2011
Senator Ron Wyden from Oregon has agreed to introduce hemp legislation in the U.S. Senate if we can find a Republican cosponsor to join him. North Dakota has been the lead state in efforts to reauthorize hemp farming in the U.S. and Senator John Hoeven was a consistent supporter of hemp legislation when he was the Governor. Now that he represents North Dakotans in the Senate, he is the perfect person to cosponsor a bill. Senator Wyden has worked with Rep. Ron Paul in the House and agreed on identical language for the Industrial Hemp Farming Act, making it a historic opportunity to move the issue into the spotlight and make the final push for reform. We need your help now to make this happen. Please call Senator Hoeven today or Monday to let him know you support hemp farming and want him to cosponsor legislation with Senator Wyden.

Senator Hoeven is in a unique position to become a cosponsor for this bill. All of the follow up bills to the hemp farming law passed in North Dakota in 1999 were passed by the state legislature and signed by then Governor Hoeven. He also signed the 2009 letter to the U.S. Department of Justice, sent by Commissioner Doug Goehring of the North Dakota Department of Agriculture, in which they asked for the Department’s help in clarifying the definition of industrial hemp, which would allow producers in the state to grow industrial hemp as a cash crop. Now as a U.S. Senator he can continue to make a difference on this issue.
