National Hemp Association Educates on Industrial Hemp at United Nations
By Geoff Whaling
While working on the home front to push every button available to advance our fiber and grain hemp exemption legislation into the starting gate before the midterm elections, and while preparing for deliberations on the 2023 Farm Bill that will get into high gear come the new congressional session in January, the NHA turned its attention to five major events happening in the same week in September.
In addition to hosting a delegation from Honduras in Texas, we attended the annual United Nations General Assembly events that we had been planning. For those who have not seen the report, this high-security week could not have been more hectic. Yet in typical New York fashion — bigger is better — UNGA overlapped with Climate Week NYC events and satellite conferences. It was a madhouse. World leaders, activists, corporate CEOs, NGOs, celebrities, politicians and heads of UN, NATO, EU and Commonwealth agencies, each with their own security team, all descended on that little, already hectic island known as Manhattan!
