Dear Mmd. and Mr.,
I call for your support for the Petition ID 16782 in the German Federal Parliament for cultivation and trade of industrial hemp. The aim of the petition is to make the cultivation and trade with industrial hemp easier for farmers. In Germany we have strong regulations regarding production and processing of industrial hemp. To take away this barrier we request the removal of §24a in the German Narcotics Law, which is the duty of disclosure of cultivation.
There is more than one way to sign the petition:
- You can sign online. The plattform is German-only, so you must use Google Translate or try to follow the example steps in this article for another german petition. Here you can sign this petition online
- Signatory list in one Page and both sides
- Info on the petition in DIN A4 and DIN A5 for printing but german only
Tipp: You can sign online, but there is an registration needed. If you dont want to be registered, please fill out an signature list. From 50.000 signatures on we get an public hearing on the topic. Everyone can join, regardless of age or nationality.
Explanatory statement of the petition
Fossil fuel will be an short resource within time. So the humanity needs an substitution for fossil fuels like oil, gas and coal. More and more heating installations are transformed into woord firing. Many things will be build with wood in the future. Hemp as renewable raw material can help in this scenario. You can produce textiles from its fibre. You can make many more products from it like paper, oil, ropes and so on. Hemp grows with little or no pesticides. More than the half of the use of pesticides goes for cotton. With hemp we can reduce the use of pesticides on the world.
Please forward this info to all interested persons!
Thanks and all the best, Johannes HofmannRepublish
