The hemp business continues to grow in South Carolina.  The latest evidence comes from a press release we came across recently announcing a new collaboration in Columbia utilizing 45,000 square feet of greenhouses to produce hemp seeds, clones and transplants and a goal of creating 40 new jobs.

Mike Switzer interviews Eric McClam, a co-owner at City Roots Farm in Columbia, who is partnering with a Columbia hemp company, Brackish Solutions, to form Cannetics, an industrial hemp seed and genetics company.
