Vegetable gardeners, pot growers boosting hydroponics supply

Hydroponic and indoor grow operation supply companies have been opening and expanding since medical marijuana laws in Colorado allowed individuals to grow plants for personal use. Colorado gardeners trying to grow healthy organic vegetables out of season are hoping that the increased competition and research will help them grow their food plants better and more cheaply as well.

Before Amendment 64 was passed, medical marijuana patients…

Not long ago in America’s history, hemp was king. “Make the most of the hemp seed and grow it everywhere,” George Washington instructed his new America. So vital to our young nation’s success was hemp, that the 1619 Virginia Assembly actually deemed it illegal for farmers not to grow the plant. It’s strange then, given how deeply entrenched hemp once was in the American landscape, to watch Kentucky fight the Department of Justice—not only for…
