You may have heard that yesterday, @senatemajldr Mitch McConnell used a little-known Senate procedure called Rule 14 that bypasses the traditional committee process and brings S. 2667 (the #Hemp Farming Act of 2018) directly to the full Senate. This certainly is a positive development. Rule 14 is a relatively common maneuver by the Leader for bills that he strongly supports, and it allows him to exercise greater control over its movement.
However, contrary to some of the media coverage and social media chatter, this is not a sign that S.2667 will be passed or even debated on the floor imminently. We are still early in the process, and much work needs to be done to develop the appropriate level of support that will enable Leader McConnell to secure final passage. That’s where you come in! In the coming days, we will be launching our online program to empower you to help us get S.2667 (and its House companion bill, H.R. 5485) across the finish line. We are going to make it easy for you to craft and send a personalized message to your Members of Congress to urge them to co-sponsor and ultimately vote for passage of these critical bills. Of course, please don’t feel like you have to wait for us. Especially if your Members serve on the Senate or House Agriculture Committees, please urge them to co-sponsor S.2667 and H.R. 5485 today! 🇺🇸🌿 If you haven't already, be sure to sign-up to hempsupporter.com to stay up-to-date with legislative progress and advocacy efforts!
@simon_gault is one of Plant Culture’s first big customers. This guy is a legend, not just because he’s done really well as a celebrity chef but because he listens and genuinely takes care of people. It’s hard love, but it’s authentic and helpful. We are totally inspired by this man. Simon happens to be a recently converted superfood fanatic (just like us at Plant Culture) so we invited him to our Pop Up Hemp Restaurant and of course he knows what’s good. Simon is keen as a bean and will be there on Sunday with his head chefs Rob and Welchy. Tickets are sold out for Sunday so get in before the rest of the tickets sell out. Be sure to dine out at @giraffe_nz to try Simon’s hemp creations too. Simon recently featured in his own @nz_on_air television show called why we are fat?! Check it out.

Did you know...Henry Ford once made a car partially made of hemp, and partial fueled by it. There's a long story to it - but it is a true fact the car parts were partially made with hemp - and hemp was used as a partial fuel source.
A bowl of goodness to start the day 💫Woke up extra early this morning knowing the weather would be amazing ☀️ Can’t wait for my workout in the park 🏃🏻♀️🌳
