Hemp and Green Energy are Destined to Marry

Getty Everyone dreams of a green planet where energy is abundant and inexpensive. Hemp is a natural resource that has long been overlooked as one material that can put this plan into motion.

Indiana Hemp Skepticism Turns Positive Due to Growing Market

Getty Indiana Hoosiers are conservative, hard-working and true to their beliefs. Farmers have been blessed with high yields of corn and soybeans that grow well in the rich Midwest soil.
