Ah memories - I set up as the Pennsylvania Hemp Industries Information Assocation selling / showing Ohio Hempery items, displaying Jack Heror's Book THe Emperor Wears No Clothes - Representing Carol Miller of Hemp Essentials out of California who was making hemp lip balms, salves, soaps all with hemp oil. 1997 - the day before I met Ralph Amato who had started No Problem Inc which evolved into Hempzels® - a day before I met Les Stark who was working with his Uncle Barry and Grandfathers vending business.

Ralph Amato financed No Problem Inc. which first starting developing Hempzels® in 1997 - Mark Tucci & Donald Riese promoted and helped develop the business in it's infancy before Shawn P. House purchased it in 1998 when the DEA was starting to talk about banning hemp foods. We've come a long way -

RIP - Ralph Amato - I met him in 1997 he came down to introduce himself after seeing the article I was in at the Eco-Ag Conference by Acres USA - I worked with him as Hempzels(tm) was being introduced - later I would set my office up in his shared space at Faye Diesel in New Holland, Pennsylvania. I purchased the business from Ralph in the process of when the company was being subpoened from the attempt to ban hemp foods. RIP Ralph I think about you often, I found this article in the archives, more to come.

One of two meetings held in Lancaster County at Yoder's Restaurant - this is when my office was at Faye Diesel's on Main Street in Blue Ball - I now owned Hempzels & No Problem Inc, I put ads in the Lancaster County Farming Paper and invited farmers and interested parties to hear speakers. This article will document what was done as more information is dug up from the archives.. This first meeting we I had Robert Rex of the Friendly Chameleon address the farmers, Bryn B, Jim & Les Stark helped out - still looking for more documents.
