In an effort to support Tennessee’s cannabis and hemp industries, the Tennessee Growers Coalition is hosting an all-day advocacy event for its members from 12-1 p.m. March 1 at the Tennessee State Capitol.

“Hemp Day on the Hill” will include legislative speakers and updates and allow members to connect and engage with representatives to discuss the “importance of continuing to create an economically viable, accessible, and safe hemp industry,” according to a press release.

The event will also consist of several meetings to address top legislative priorities including: House Bill 1690, a measure that would tax and regulate cannabis, including delta-8 THC, and Senate Bill 2598, cross-filed with House Bill 1969, which would decriminalize cannabis use under specific circumstances, as well as create a “regulatory framework for the cultivation, transport, researching, processing, and distribution of marijuana,” the bill text states.
