Who We Are & Why
With passage of the Federal Farm Bill, the growth of industrial hemp as an alternative crop will continue leading to new marketing opportunities throughout the supply chain. Hemp-based products have grown in popularity as natural remedies for pain, nausea, seizures, anxiety and other ailments.
Although industrial hemp is now legal, issues related to products derived from this "old is new again" crop are prevalent at all levels of government.
The Minnesota Industrial Hemp Association works to ensure that opportunities for products derived from industrial hemp continue to grow and be readily available to consumers. We also work to position Minnesota as a leader in the industrial hemp sector.
The association has experience working in a variety of areas, including; government relations, strategic communications, media relations, grassroots activation, and coalition building. The Minnesota Industrial Hemp Association leverages all of these experiences to benefit our members.
The Minnesota Industrial Hemp Association utilizes a multifaceted approach in support of our membership. We constantly monitor the legislative and regulatory issues related to industrial hemp and work to prevent harmful actions such as large tax increases on the sales of products, marketing restrictions and retail sales restrictions at the local, state and federal levels.
