Ty Bollinger: One thing. And thank you for sharing all that about hemp, cannabis, because that’s kind of a little bit of our hidden history. People don’t realize that. They think—they hear the word marijuana, which is actually a slang for the hemp or the cannabis plant, and they think, “Oh, you must be a pothead.”
Dr. Patrick Quillin: Yeah.
Ty Bollinger: Right? They don’t realize the thousands of medicinal and therapeutic uses for this plant. And so I think that’s really important for people that are watching to know that this is a medicinal plant. And so, thank you for sharing in those details.

And so, instead of cutting down trees to make paper, we could grow hemp and use that to make paper. You can use it to make materials, canvas, clothing; it’s an industrial material. It’s a nutritive material, and it’s a medicinal substance.
