Mary Amendment To Farm Bill Approved In Committe, Now Moves To House

There was no roll call vote on the hemp-killing Mary Miller Amendment

We share some very dispiriting news from Capitol Hill: There was no roll call vote on the hemp-killing Mary Miller Amendment (discussed in detail here). Instead, House Agriculture Committee Chairman G.T. Thompson grouped it “en bloc” with several other amendments and subjected them to a voice vote, which passed.

This is especially disappointing because we were confident that on a roll call vote, we would win.  In the 12 hours since we started our campaign, Hemp Supporters sent more than 7000 emails urging defeat of the amendment.  On the ground, our lobbyists and our Board members, working closely with other industry groups — including diligent work from Americans for Healthy Alternatives and the Midwest Hemp Council — held dozens of meetings with committee members who were able to understand the nuances of the issue.  Three Members of Congress spoke up at the hearing denouncing the amendment.
