The passage of the 2018 Farm Bill was a major landmark for the growing hemp industry, effectively removing hemp from the Controlled Substances Act and making it federally legal, said Functional Remedies Chief Science Officer, Tim Gordon. With the decades of stigma we are still overcoming, there are still so many people in the dark about hemps legality, its uses and what the future will bring. It was an honor to take part in this well-thought-out educational segment to help answer these questions for PBS audiences.
