Posted on December 20, 2000

Check us out now at for in-depth news you can use.


We got the good and the bad in this edition of the Hemp Report. It’s been that kind of year.

You’ll want to check out our Year in Hemp wrap up and round up, our first Market Development special featuring new products of 2000 and also Feral Peril—written and FULLY illustrated by Dr. Alexander Sumach, Canada’s wit and wizard of hemp.

Also in this issue: Ethanol is on the table, first North American cultivars for Canadian farmers, what’s going down in Washington and much more, including Margaret Atwood (no she’s not a contributor yet.). Thanks to Martine Carlina, John McPartland (both on NAIHC) and Sasha Przytyk (The Benefits of Irrigation) for their strong contributions to this issue too.
