Vote Hemp seeks the full
deregulation of and free market for industrial hemp in America.
Vote Hemp's mission is to educate consumers, businesses, farmers
and legislators about the many benefits of industrial hemp and to
mobilize voters to elect pro-hemp politicians. Hemp is one of the
few issues on the national debate that enjoys tremendous bipartisan

and conservatives, farmers and hippies, global corporations and
small mom-and-pop businesses are all part of the broad coalition
in favor of industrial hemp. They all have one thing in common:
an education in the facts.
