Recently, the U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly approved an amendment to allow U.S. military personnel to use products containing hemp, including CBD. If it becomes law, the amendment will reverse the Department of Defense’s draconian policy that makes the use of hemp products by service members a crime—a policy that quietly came into effect earlier this year. The amendment will also invalidate policies by the Army and Air Force that ban the use of hemp products and policies by the Navy and Marine Corps that limit acceptable use to topical products.
The legislation will be heard next in the U.S. Senate, where hemp has strong bipartisan support. Hemp Supporters are encouraged to use our online portal to urge your U.S. Senators to pass similar language allowing the use of CBD by U.S. military personnel.
If there are any Americans who most deserve access to wellness products such as CBD, it’s our brave, selfless troops. Let’s make sure that the men and women who risk their lives for our freedoms have the freedom to use quality, legal hemp products.
