Industrial Hemp


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

It grows quickly and easily, and can be used to make an unbelievable array of products from car oil to clothes. But under current law, it’s a felony to grow industrial hemp, which is regulated the same way as its mind-altering relative, marijuana.

First Broadcast: 1998
Producer: Eric Cain
