Colorado Is At The Center
With Colorado leading the nation in terms of domestic hemp production (~9,000 of the ~12,0000 acres cultivated in 2016), this legislative effort needs to begin here.
That said, the CDPHE, the CDA, and various other State Agencies have been very willing to discuss ways to resolve this problem at the State level. They simply want legislative clarity. To that end, we have drafted legislation to SOLVE this problem.
The industry is aligned on the manner in which to solve this, and we NEED YOUR FINANCIAL SUPPORT.
