It would seem that the hemp bill in California will either be vetoed or passed in the next two weeks. The proposal sits on the governor's desk and he can, with a flick of his pen, make a decision. Or is there an alternative? An email from Eric Pollit Global Hemp makes mention of a third choice, he will do nothing. In which case, a lawsuit may ensue in January. At this point the Hemp Industries Association is taking names for a petition. Vote Hemp is also on the case, as are businesses such as Minawear and Nutiva.

Individuals are encouraged to make their vote count as well, with personal communications to the governor's office in Sacramento, the California Agriculture Commission and local newspapers.
