Business leaders and academics met Monday in Noblesville for a symposium on hemp, part of an ongoing effort to legitimize and kick start the crop in Indiana.

Despite legislators legalizing the growing of hemp last year, it hasn’t taken off. Right now it can only be grown by researchers and universities.

Our guests:

  • George Blankenbaker, Manager of Real Hemp and member of the Indiana Hemp Industries Association Board of Directors
  • Janna Beckerman, Professor and Extension Plant Pathologist at Purdue University
  • Alan Kimbell, member of the North American Industrial Hemp Council
