New Mexico One is an excellent think tank for good ideas. One of their recent research briefs is on the vast potential of industrial hemp production and how that production uniquely fits New Mexico’s climate and the needs of a sagging rural economy. In describing the tremendous potential of industrial hemp production, Alicia Smith and Alan Webber also tell the tale of how good ideas die in New Mexico.
It is a tremendous read. 1NM+Hemp+Position+Paper.
