Cornell and New York State's commitment to cannabis sustainability
MetadataShow full item record
The cannabis plant has always been one of the most discussed crops ever since it was outlawed in America. It’s medicinal, social, and economic value are unmatched when comparing it to other crops. The medical marijuana and hemp industry (together) was estimated at a $6.7B in 2016 and is estimated to grow to over $30B in 2025. This drastic economic boom is something that should not be looked over and can have a major impact on America as a whole. My film covers how Cornell became involved with growing industrial cannabis sativa (hemp variety) and their reasoning for collaborating with Cornell Cooperative Extension Specialists and New York State in order to maximize economic success while maintaining sustainable practices. My film includes interviews from two experts who discuss the industry and the crop.
