Hats Off! to Tom Wood whose latest article in the Nashville Ledger, "Tobacco Out, Hemp in for Tennessee Farmers," about the growth of the hemp industry in Tennessee, was picked up by The Associated Press. It's appeared online in the San Francisco Chronicle, Albany Times-Union, and U.S. News & World Report. "The growth of the state’s hemp industry is booming. The number of licensed growers in Tennessee has increased from 226 in 2018 to more than 2,900 this year."
