Petition To Save The Hemp Industry!

Iowa Regulators are trying to limit your access to CBD & THC Products!

Link to the petition: https://www.care2.com/go/z/e/A0dB3/zoyY/DcSjT 

If Iowa Bills HSB 655 & SSB 3159 are enacted as written, would significantly impede local access to CBD relief and have devastating consequences for Iowa’s hemp industry.

  • THC Limitations: HHS could limit the THC content of popular products.
  • Indiscriminately charge people who possess hemp flower with possession of a product intended for inhalation and could face fines ranging from $450 to $2560 and up to 1 year in prison.
  • Retailer Penalties: Unregistered retailers may be charged up to $10,000 per day for failure to register.
  • Youth Access: Selling or giving CBD balm to individuals under 21 could lead to fines of up to $855 and 30 days in jail, even if the product contains no THC.
  • Youth Usage Penalties: Individuals under 21 could face penalties for using CBD balm, irrespective of THC content.
  • Product Confiscation: Retailers may face product confiscation and disposal costs if they forget to seek HHS approval.
  • Farmer Protections Removed: Hemp farmers could be charged with the production of a controlled substance, facing up to 50 years in jail and a $1 million fine if their crops test slightly over the harvest limit.
