As stated last issue, we will no longer be printing our full Organizations Directory or State Listings each month, due to cost concerns. These sections, as well as our lists of other newsletters, online resources and companies or organizations offering hemp products will be included periodically and will be available at other times for a nominal cost.

We depend on our membership to help us keep tabs on what's going on in drug policy around the country. Please send us current info on legislation and other concerns, as well as organizations working in your state for reform.
