HEMP LOBBY, POLAND
Hemp Lobby - Industrial Hemp Association was founded in 2005 by the Gota Project. It is the first independent organisation working on a free will basis. Its object is to create and intergrate a balanced milieau concentrating on industrial, cultural and political hemp matters. Hemp Lobby fascilitates an exchange of information and experience concerning policies of production, retail, as well as promoting hemp articles.
Business aside, Hemp Lobby also works with all unions and initiatives which are developing the growth of the hemp market.
In 2006, the founders of Hemp Lobby together with Agency Sowjet, the publishers of the monthly Hanf Journal, conceived a new project. The effect of this project is the first free hemp newspaper Spliff, released earlier this year. It is the first periodical of its kind in Poland, also for the Polish communities living abroad within the European Union.
A priority of the association is to create a programme to redress the farming industry of hemp fibre with the support of the already existing ABC - Hemp Farming project, together with developing various projects leading to balanced status of hemp.

VII. Hemp Culture ( marijuana - a side product of many other things)
The above activities have been building up over the span of a few years deriving from the Gota Project. We have created an independent structure using innovative methods and striving to find completely new solutions.
A strong and sturdy economical structure is essential in order to alter the politics currently surrounding hemp and, moreover, the implementation of unprofitable raw materials and products.
