Now we need to find a paper plant that will convert from trees to hemp. Very excited to see this long term plan start rollin'.

Liehman, I'm looking forward to the N-R one day being printed on hemp paper.


I bet the development will be done by the same team that created Bridgeport Village in Tualatin.


The prospect of using hemp is an exciting one. Great innovation.


To change over to hemp fiber might require another 100,000 acres of hemp. The wood tree chips and sawdust will be created whether it is made into paper or not. As wood chips are by-product and hemp will need to be specifically grown the cost differential could be significant.
