Florida Hemp Processing: The Florida legislature has shut down hemp again this year.  The house bill put hemp in hemp prison for 5 years at the University.  The Senate bill had no appropriations in it so they put it in the Appropriations committee, the worst committee where it won't get heard.  

The Florida governor ran HCA/Columbia hospital system that was charged with the worst corporate fine in history (1999) for Medicare fraud.  He was retired by the Board and came to Florida where he built a chain of walk-in clinics.  The pharmaceutical industry fights hemp badly.

Bob Clayton gave an hour long interview on hemp and hempcrete on WMNF radio's permaculture hour in Tampa. They want to do it again so maybe Bob can help build their advocacy on the radio. WMNF is listener-supported so they can do alternative programming.

Hemp Picks LLC: 

Press Release for Hemp Picks LLC Opening

Demonstrating the industrial value of hemp in Parkersburg

The Point Park Marketplace has a new business that set up shop on April 20th in downtown Parkersburg. Robby Kerr and J. Morgan Leach are passionate entrepreneurs who launched Hemp Picks to educate the locals about industrial hemp and really demonstrate the industrial value of a once standard and vital crop in this country. 

Hemp Picks will provide a venue for those interested in hemp to shop for sustainable products or learn more about growing industrial hemp in West Virginia. 

Studying cannabis industries and assisting a variety of businesses, Robby Kerr is knowledgeable about what this new industry can offer West Virginia. “There is an educational gap in the distinction between hemp and marijuana”, Robby said, “and I enjoy showing the variety of sustainable products being developed for everyday use. People are shocked that such a valuable and versatile crop was prohibited during a majority of the 20th century”.

The Point Park Marketplace is fostering a festive environment for Parkersburg, and the interest in hemp is growing for the area. The store will offer art, educational materials, soap, musical instruments and accessories, foods, clothing, bags, tinctures, and lotions. For more information, visit their website at or email
