Welcome to our 15th issue of the Hemp Report, and the end of our second year of publishing.
A few year end features you will want to call up on your screen include our annum cannabis -- the year in hemp, and our first Market Development Special, featuring new products from Canada, US and the world.
A few of our regular sections have been left out this time -- American Beauty and Fibre Front -- but they will return in full in our next issue in February 2001.
Thanks to all our advertisers who have made our run possible, our writers who have contributed voice and knowledge and of course, to all of our readers. The Hemp Report generates a lot of commentary and inquiries and it is gratifying to see that we are having a lot of impact.
I would also like to thank the Alberta New Crops network for inviting me to speak at the Horticulture Conference held in Edmonton this past November. Speaking on the topic of Web Marketing for Agricultural Producers and Companies, it gave me an opportunity to translate what I have learned with this publishing project to a broader audience. It was a rewarding experience.
I'll keep it short today, and leave you to dive deeply into this issue.
Enjoy. And may the sun rise on your solstice.
