The 6th annual Hemp History Week campaign began on Monday, bringing more than 1,400 events including documentary film screenings, cooking demonstrations, retail promotions, educational outreach, spring hemp plantings and hemp home building courses to the public—all aimed to catalyze movement on the issue of lifting the federal ban on industrial hemp farming in the United States.

Organized by Hemp Industries Association (HIA) and Vote Hemp, Hemp History Week will be held June 1-7, with events occurring in all 50 states. Encouraged by federal support in Congress, with the Industrial Hemp Farming Act introduced in both the House and Senate in January 2015, the campaign's theme Sow the Seed highlights spring plantings in states that have passed legislation legalizing industrial hemp farming, and encourages consumers to participate in the call for support among legislators to support industrial hemp farming and the growth of the hemp industry nationwide.
