Beware an author with a scythe. Doug Fine, author of HEMP BOUND, attempts to add “ hemp farmer” to his “ hemp journalist” CV care of the helpful farmers in the Slovenian village of Trimlini. On August 26, 2014, the Slovenian village turned out at dusk, many in traditional clothing, to celebrate the tenth modern hemp harvest on 25 acres owned by Mr. Igor Kulcar. This is what North America needs more of after 77 years of memory-erasing cannabis prohibition: lessons from people who actually know how to harvest hemp. Even if said teachers quickly learn The Pros and Cons of Putting a Scythe in the Hands of a Comedic Investigative Journalist. For Doug, it’s all part of his continuing effort to help North America and other new hemp economies learn how to cultivate and harvest the crop that he believes, after five years research, can help humanity’s food and energy systems become sustainable.
