Vote Hemp

Eric Steenstra has 23 years experience in the hemp industry including as a co-founder of the pioneering hemp company Ecolution, and member of the political advocacy group Vote Hemp.

Vote Hemp has been instrumental in getting pro-hemp legislation passed in more than 30 states. In 2005, Eric worked with Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) to get the first modern U.S. hemp legislation (H. 3037) introduced in Congress and in 2012 he worked with Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) to get hemp legislation introduced in the U.S. Senate. Eric also worked closely with House and Senate members to get breakthrough hemp legislation included in the 2014 Farm Bill which has enabled state hemp pilot programs to commence.
