Purdue ready to plant legal hemp

Goshen News
Ronald Turco has conducted critical research in his 30 years at Purdue University but his current project is the first to be vetted by federal drug agents.

An agronomist, Turco has spent months clearing hurdles to begin the first legal production of industrial hemp in decades in Indiana. Facing questions from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration was just one of many steps in getting the cannabis seeds into the ground.

“You can’t just open up a catalog on the Internet and buy the stuff," he said. "It’s not like ordering a couple bags of seed corn that just show up on your doorstep the next day.”
