Video: Why Special Interests Are Against Hemp THC

What does big pharma, big alcohol, and the prison-industrial complex have in common? They've got a lot of money and resources invested in fighting against hemp-derived cannabinoids. 

Learn more about these special interest groups, why they're against these products, and how the hemp industry is pushing back from Hometown Hero CEO and Co-Founder Lukas Gilkey in the video below: 


Your Support Matters

The history of cannabis in the United States is riddled with special interest groups trying to barricade people from this remarkable plant. But luckily, there have been many incredible people who have helped turn the tide against prohibition. 

Whether you're in this industry or someone who appreciates these products, we cannot thank you enough for your support. It's people like you who are helping make a difference and helping us stand firmly against these long-standing, influential forces. 

And if you're curious to learn more about the state of the hemp industry, you can check out our videos where Lukas gets a perspective from law enforcement and an update on our Delta-8 lawsuit against the state of Texas. 

Until next time.

Don’t forget about the 4th opponent to hemp-derived D9THC: Big Marijuana. These guys are successfully lobbying in several states to cap the maximum amount of D9THC per PRODUCT at 2mg. They appear eager to corner the psychoactive cannabinoid market.

Thank you for all that you do!

Keep fighting


I can’t say enough about your products. So happy my friend told me about you. The taffy & caramels saved me after my fusion surgery. Keep on fighting!


Land of the free. Has less and less freedom of choice each and every day.
Enough is enough. Let’s fight this fight with everything we can.

Keep up the good fight and good luck.
