It’s Hemp vs. the DEA…Again!
By Steven Hoffman
When Congress passed the 2018 Farm Bill, it included historic legislation that legalized the production and sale of industrial hemp in the U.S. for the first time in more than 80 years. In doing so, it removed the DEA’s (U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration) decades-long adversarial jurisdiction over the crop.
Unfortunately, reported the U.S. Hemp Roundtable on September 14, “DEA has stuck its nose back under the hemp tent.”

Part One with Morris Beegle
Morris Beegle, President & CEO of Colorado Hemp Company and WAFBA, joins this podcast to discuss how his experience in the music industry has allowed him to build the world’s largest hemp trade show, known as NoCo Hemp Expo, and develop hemp apparel and paper products.
Morris talks about how the hemp space has gone from a focus on fiber, before CBD was well known, and back to fiber, as the CBD bubble is popping. His goals are around growing the hemp manufacturing supply chain in the US by starting with the products, then working his way back to the plant. Such as his company Tree Free Hemp, which currently imports it’s pulp, though is working to build out a large enough source here in the US.
Join WhatCannaRadio as they discuss the future of US Hemp with Morris Beegle.
