A state hemp association in North Carolina, USA as re-formed into the Southeast Hemp Association (SEHA), a regional group to represent growers, processors, retailers and ancillary service providers across 7 states. SEHA was originally formed as the North Carolina Industrial Hemp Association in 2015. The new association said it already counts 650 members. The group will work to build the hemp supply chain across the region by promoting best practices and standards for all facets of hemp farming and production, SEHA said in a statement. “State borders should not define us when it comes to this multi-use agricultural commodity. Our goal is to establish a better network of communication to address all the upcoming state and federal challenges in our industry,” said Blake Butler, who was appointed Executive Director of new association.
