PA Farm Bureau Forges Ahead with Hemp, episode 23, Industrial Hemp Podcast

The Farm Bureau has supported the reintroduction of industrial hemp as a commodity crop for many years. In fact, Mark O’Neill, communications director for the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau, says that without the lobbying efforts of Farm Bureau, industrial hemp would still be classified as a schedule 1 narcotic. On this episode of the podcast, we talk to O’Neil and his colleague, Bill Neilson, the director of Commodities and Compliance at Pennsylvania Farm Bureau. We hear what the Farm Bureau is doing to help farmers navigate this new world of industrial hemp. Plus, a few announcements and listener emails. Give a listen.
