Hemp History

date Thursday, 30 May 2013 time 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

👤 Ben Droz 🏢 Above the Bike Shop


Industrial hemp has been grown throughout history for a variety of uses. However, there was a sharp decline in the early 20th century following drug hysteria that linked industrial hemp to its cousin, marijuana. 

Learn about hemp’s storied past and its many uses in the run-up to Hemp History Week (June 3-9). We’ll discuss the crop’s environmental and economic benefits, as well as its current legal status.
