Hemp for Victory Educational Forum - Feb. 24 - Akron

Ohio Rights Group presents Hemp For Victory Educational Forum featuring an expert panel discussion and Q&A covering the 2014 Ohio Cannabis Rights Amendment (OCRA) to legalize Industrial Hemp Farming and Therapeutic Cannabis for the State of Ohio.

This event will be held at the Akron location of Ohio's largest natural health food store, Mustard Seed Market.

After nearly two years of being held up by congress, President Obama has signed the Farm Bill which contains an amendment to legalize hemp production for research purposes in states that have legalized cannabis.

While our state legislators have had the opportunity to also pass laws to allow for this new economic opportunity to unfold for Ohioans and our state-based agricultural research services, they haven't because of out-dated misinformation and stereotypes associated with the cannabis plant.

The OCRA would allow for Ohio to benefit from this federal change in the legal implementation of growing this valuable commodity. 

Come learn the language of this citizens rights-based amendment and how to get involved as several experts and advocates explain the agronomy of growing hemp and the spectrum of its potential as a nutritious food source, biofuel and non-toxic textile source in the context of Ohio's economy.

Please share with family, friends and across your networks who are part of Ohio's largest industry, AGRICULTURE. 

Public welcome. Suggested donation of $10.
