We are raising money to benefit Midwest Hemp Council and specifically Indiana's next Pro-Hemp litigation to fight the Hemp Ban.
Hemp can help medical patients, small businesses, farmers, manufacturing and sustainability.
To deny hemp is to deny progression and a huge opportunity for economic growth, especially during the pandemic.
Any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to so many.
"In Indiana, a ban on smokable hemp flower included in its regulations was challenged in court, and in September 2019 a federal judge issued a preliminary injunction putting that part of the state’s regulations on hold. But in July, the Seventh Circuit of the U.S. Court of Appeals reversed the injunction. With that ruling, Indiana’s ban went into effect on Thursday, making possession and delivery of smokable hemp a misdemeanor offense.
Justin Swanson, the president of the Midwest Hemp Council, filed the suit against the state on behalf of the trade group. He told High Times in a telephone interview that with the ban now in effect, many in Indiana’s nascent hemp industry are stuck with product that is now illegal to sell.
“The seventh circuit [decision] was a mixed bag for the plaintiffs,” he said. “It did reaffirm the fact that the state doesn’t have the authority to interfere with interstate transportation of hemp and hemp products, which is a win for out-of-state companies and farmers shipping through Indiana. But it does nothing to help the farmers here and the small businesses in Indiana.”'
