We celebrated Hemp History in Bethlehem, PA where our crew learned how to create hemp paper and hemp concrete, got to check out a BMW-with interior panels made from hemp and had a tour of Lehigh University’s Industrial Hemp pilot program! Twenty U.S. states, including PA, have legalized growth of industrial hemp for research and pilot projects. The Industrial Hemp Research Act, Number 92, signed by Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf on July 20, 2016, provides the ability for industrial hemp to be grown or cultivated by the PA Dept. of Agriculture or an institution of higher education. Of the 16 industrial hemp research projects approved, three are led by Lehigh University in partnership with the Pennsylvania Hemp Industrial Council (PAHIC).
