The Michigan Industrial Hemp Education and Marketing Project has the stated goal of "Working to expand hemp as a natural resource for industrial and private enterprise."


Our mission is to educate the public and state government officials about Industrial Hemp and try to clear up the myths and teach the facts through meetings and seminars and setting up booths at public events.


We also will be working to connect consumers and vendors of hemp products in Michigan and in the United States.


We are a non profit organization and will fund it through membership dues, fund raising events, and donations. If you are interested in helping out or becoming a member please do not hesitate to contact us.
