Hemp: History, Legislation, Cultivation, & the Farm Bill
SJI Grange invites you a presentation on May 16 – Hemp: History, Legislation, Cultivation, & the Farm Bill.
Bonny Jo Peterson, Executive Director of the Industrial Hemp Association of Washington will cover the history of hemp and its uses, the difference between hemp and marijuana, changes to the Farm Bill, and growing hemp on a small/homestead scale tailored to the Islands.
Check out this article on Spokane’s Spokesman-Review website speculating on whether hemp could be Washington’s next cash crop.
