Great question. When the growing of industrial hemp became legal in Colorado in November of 2012, I realized this was going to be a HUGE opportunity. I searched around for the group responsible for the ballot initiative and learn that there was no organization to help grow the industry … so I created the Rocky Mountain Hemp Association in early 2013 which grew into the National Hemp Association a year later. I was the Founding Executive Director from 2013 till the end of 2016 and after stepping down started up the Hemp Marketplace. The rest as they say … is history.
