CBD Production in ND ~ Dr. Anthony Fauci on COVID19
Tuesday, February 25, 2020 – Processing hemp for CBD oil is an emerging industry in North Dakota, finding its way in the early going as farmers tackle this new crop and the regulations that come with it. Joining us from Prairie Products LLC are Veronica Michael, CEO; Tom Kading, CFO; and Kevin Soiseth, director of quality. ~~~ This is the first year many farmers have grown hemp, now that it’s legal under the 2018 Farm Bill. In addition to the normal challenges of farming, hemp growers have had to deal with a different kind of problem: theft. Harvest Public Media’s Dana Cronin reports on a hemp heist in Illinois. ~~~ In a Natural North Dakota essay, Chuck Lura discusses house and purple finches. ~~~ The stock market has dipped out of concern for the economic impact of the Corona Virus and COVID19, but there are still a lot of questions about the seriousness of the epidemic. In an excerpt from the Conversations on Health Care podcast, hosts Mark Masselli and Margaret Flinter speak with Dr. Anthony Fauci about the COVID19 epidemic and whether America is safe. Dr. Fauci is a globally renowned epidemiologist and the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health.
