The 2017 Hemp Road Trip is Planning on Reaching 30 States in two Months
Following a successful 2016 tour around the U.S., the group behind The 2017 Hemp Road Trip are trying to raise funds – so they can raise awareness about the power of hemp across the country.
“The number one myth is that hemp is a drug like marijuana – that it gets you high,” says Rick Trojan. Earlier this year, on the first leg of his 2017 Hemp Road Trip, Rick found a lot of misconceptions about the plant. “Many farmers don’t even know they can receive more subsidies than with corn,”explains Rick, “It’s a new option for many states, for example, in the Carolinas it could be used as construction material.”
The 2017 Hemp Road Trip is planning on reaching 30 states in two months. Beginning in the South, the bus of advocates will trek up the coast to the Northeastern states, then across the Midwest, up to Montana and Washington, then back across Oregon, Northern California, through Utah and back home to it’s home base of Colorado.
