The International Hemp Association is a non-profit organization established in 1992 to promote the beneficial uses of hemp products worldwide. The organization encourages and facilitates the accumulation and exchange of information on Cannabis, sponsors projects in several countries and publishes this journal for its members. The IHA is supported by memberships and by donations from foundations, corporations and individuals.
Although many IHA members may feel that in light of the great potential of Cannabis, the current legal restrictions hampering Cannabis research and hemp cultivation should be reconsidered, the IHA does not endorse a political stance on Cannabis legislation, nor will it serve as a forum for the Cannabis legalization debate.
