Local hemp advocate vows to persevere

Cortez Journal
An advocate of hemp farming in Southwest Colorado vows to continue her quest to cultivate a local economic boom on the back of “the devil’s lettuce.” 

“I plan on persevering,” said Sharon Stewart, who owns a coffee shop on Cortez’s Main Street.

Although interest has dissipated since launching the Hemp Talks group last fall, Stewart hopes to attract wider support in 2015 via public screenings of “Bringing It Home,” a documentary on the historical, economic and political impacts of industrial hemp. Viewings in Dove Creek, Cortez and Durango are being planned.
