Last year, when Amendment 64 legalized recreational marijuana in Colorado, it also legalized hemp. And since then, for the first time in decades, farmers around the state are considering growing the industrial fiber.

On this episode of Sounds of the High Country, KDNK Radio's collaboration with High Country News, Eric Skalac talks to reporter Allen Best, who wrote about Colorado hemp for High Country News.

Past editions of Sounds of the High Country are at, or available as a podcast on iTunes.
