Hemp Farming Takes Root in Northwest Arkansas

Since a 1930s prohibition on hemp farming was lifted last year by the federal government, more than a 100 hemp cultivation licenses have been issued in Arkansas. Hemp cultivation remains tightly regulated until new federal laws are developed. We take a tour of Arkansas Hemp Genetics, a new medicinal hemp farm in rural Washington County.
