Come enjoy delicious hemp foods and meet with like-minded people who realize the important role hemp will play in creating a more sustainable world. In the past three years, a variety of hemp food manufacturers and trade groups have gone to court to prevent the DEA from banning hemp foods, and these legal efforts have finally met with success.
