We are proud to represent the HIA and to have prepared the position statement. The HIA has a long history of supporting hemp and participants in the hemp industry, including by filing a series of lawsuits against the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). At a time when a number of law enforcement agencies, state departments of agriculture, and even other hemp organizations are taking public stances against delta-8 THC, it is refreshing that the HIA is willing to step up and publicly support the whole plant.
