Hemp was grown throughout Pennsylvania for nearly 300 years, but in the past 80 years it's been illegal to grow. Today we talk to hemp historian Les Stark who has documented the history of hemp in the state in his book Hempstone Heritage. We also discuss why hemp disappeared 80 years ago. Was it a conspiracy? Stark has been on a 20 year mission to bring industrial hemp back into production in the Pennsylvania.
