Virginia Industrial Hemp Coalition (VIHC) is a grassroots driven advocacy organization whose goal is to educate, inspire and rally Virginians to restore the free market for Industrial Hemp, a low-THC oilseed and fiber crop, a variety of Cannabis.

There is already clear support in our state for industrial hemp. In 1999 and 2001, the Virginia legislature passed supportive resolutions calling for a revised federal hemp policy. The VIHC believes that further legislative changes are necessary to create a safe and well regulated environment to once again allow Virginia farmers to responsibly grow, process, and compete in a burgeoning domestic U.S. industrial hemp market.
