The Cannabis Reporter interviewed US Representative, James Comer, and Ananda Hemp President of Global Production, Brian Furnish, in October to discuss healthy gains made by the Hemp Industry since 2014.

The interview (full audio below) reviews proposed updates to hemp legislation. Specifically, much of the conversation revolves around H.R.3530, which is deemed as the Industrial Hemp Farming Act of 2017). This issue is receiving a great deal of bipartisan support and somewhat less of a struggle than that experienced during the groundbreaking 2014 Farm Bill. Since 2014, there has also been growing national support for industrial hemp. This is due in large part to the increase in education about the benefits it can provide to industry, medicine, and agriculture throughout America.
