In the history of hemp, the mythology of Mitch McConnell looms large. He is often credited with being the guy who made hemp happen for farmers in Kentucky, but McConnell is up for reelection this year.
Hoping to challenge him in the Senate race is Mike Broihier, a retired lieutenant colonel in the Marines and a farmer in Kentucky.
On this week’s podcast, Broihier talks about the hemp industry in Kentucky, what he would do as a Senator to help farmers, and how the Marine Corps and farming have prepared him for his first venture into politics.
