Quotes

Ms. Meeker began to cry and shake with terror. "In a desperate plea for her life, she begged the man not to hurt her, telling him she had a young child" her lawsuit alleged
Catherine Hearn, owner and President, stated "The industrial hemp market has grown exponentially– fiber, protein powders, hemp hearts, milk, plastics, and Hempcrete are just a few of the many products that have been developed. Yet for manufacturers entering the industry, there is no easy way to find bulk raw materials. Growers who take a chancechance on hemp often take a lower price to grow on contract as there’s no easy way to find a buyer. Hemp-Connect will efficiently connect industry participants by giving them a central location to buy and sell hemp ingredients, processing services, and materials.”"
