Hemp harvest legal in Colo. for first time

The Denver Post
Yet even as Colorado farmers made history this fall with the first legal commercial hemp harvest on U.S. soil in 57 years, it's unlikely that much of their bounty will go toward the plant's diverse list of potential uses.

Instead, hobbled by a longstanding federal ban on shipping hemp seed across state lines, most Colorado hemp farmers are squirreling away their seed supply, using this year's harvest as a source of next year's supply in an attempt to vastly increase planted acreage in 2015 with Colorado-grown seed stock.
