Understanding hemp as a legal crop with “Organic Cowboy” Doug Fine

April 18, 2014

Guest: Doug Fine

As the widely contested legalization of marijuana in the United States is increasingly making headlines, pot’s non-psychoactive cousin, hemp, became legal earlier this year. The Agricultural Act of 2014 allows for 13 states’ universities and state agricultural departments to study the growth, cultivation and marketing of industrial hemp, the first time in about 75 years. Our guest, author and former NPR contributor, DOUG FINE, has been an advocate of bringing back this ancient plant, and he comes in to talk to Marty about his latest book, “Hemp Bound: Dispatches from the Front Lines of the Next Agricultural Revolution.”
