The Pennsylvania Hemp Steering Committee is comprised of farmers, processors, business owners, lawyers, policymakers and college professors. The committee was established to help guide the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture as they develop the hemp program in the state.

Jefferson University engineering professor Dr. Ronald Kander has been selected as chair of the leadership team of the committee. On this week’s show he explains how the steering committee works, the challenges they face, and the principles that guide the committee.

Following the interview with Dr. Kander, we talk to Adam Dietrich from ReBlocks, a Denver, Colorado-based company that uses recycled plastic to make building materials. They recently started using components of the hemp plant in their composites.
