California Survey Shows Support For Hemp Farming


New Member
Vote Hemp, the nation's leading grassroots organization working to give farmers the right to grow non-psychoactive industrial hemp to be made into everything from food, clothing, paper, body care, bio-fuel and even auto parts, has released a new poll of 801 likely California voters about industrial hemp.

The survey was conducted by the respected research firm Zogby International on behalf of Vote Hemp and five manufacturers of hemp food products including Alpsnack(TM), French Meadow Bakery(TM), Living Harvest(TM), Nature's Path Organic Foods(TM) and Nutiva(TM).

The poll results released today for the first time confirm there is strong support for reform on the issue of industrial hemp. A total of 71% support changing state law to allow farmers to grow hemp and of those surveyed 46% strongly support and another 25% somewhat support changing state law so California farmers can supply manufacturers with hemp seed, oil and fiber. Presently companies must import hemp from other countries.

Over the past several years the California Legislature has passed resolutions and bills to permit farmers to grow industrial hemp.

Today more than 30 industrialized nations grow industrial hemp and export to the US.
