U.S. Representative Earl Blumenauer: Oregon Is Poised To Be A Leader In Industrial Hemp


Oregon has had a hemp law on the books since 2009, but hasn’t enacted it due to federal hemp prohibition. According to United States Representative Earl Blumenauer, a recent announcement by the feds has cleared the way for implementation. Earl Blumenauer is one of the greatest assets the hemp and marijuana movements have. He has been a hero of mine for a long, long time. Below is video footage and a summary from his recent hemp forum:

Representative Earl Blumenauer Oregon District 3, speaks about the need to develop industrial hemp as a cash crop for Oregon farmers at the University of Oregon White Stag Building in Portland, Oregon on November 9, 2013.

This video is the introduction to an Industrial Hemp panel featuring Eric Steenstra (Hemp Industries Association), Lindsay Eng (Oregon Dept of Agriculture), Rick Rutherford (Oregon Farmer), Errol Schweizer (Whole Foods Markets) and Russ Karow (Oregon State University).

Footage: Campaign for the Restoration and Regulation of Hemp (CRRH).

    We’ve been wanting to benefit from this industry for a long time. That means not only from the plant’s many uses but also from the financial end of it. How can the average, poverty-level citizen get in on the ground floor of what promises to be a HUGE economic boon?
