Federal progress, pilot projects, new legislation, and recent key state hires clarify that hemp is what’s happening.
Complementing this culmination: The newly launched Florida Hemp Industries Association.
The new association will focus on connecting individuals and companies to the Sunshine State’s burgeoning hemp industry. It’s spearheaded by Jeff Sharkey and Taylor Biehl, two lobbyists who’ve made their dent in the state’s pot landscape — primarily through their Medical Marijuana Business Association.
Because other positive developments fill the backdrop of the hemp landscape in Florida and beyond, the launch likely couldn’t come at a better time.
