'We don't know exactly what they're doing': Researcher concerned about how hemp oil is produced

With thousands of acres near harvest in Tennessee, one TSU researcher is worried about how some processors extract hemp oil.

Dr. Roy Bullock is the Director of the hemp program at TSU. He knows there are many processors in the state, but isn't sure about what methods everyone is using.

"Right now, with everybody in the hemp program, nobody is exactly sure about any processes that [are] going on," said Dr. Bullock. "We don't know exactly what they're doing from a university standpoint."

Hemp can be extracted in a number of ways. Dr. Bullock said, in his opinion, the way that shows the most promise is by using liquid frozen carbon dioxide.

Vaping illnesses pose problems for marijuana legalization efforts in Minnesota

Says J. Patrick Coolican for the Star Tribune, “Opponents of legalizing marijuana in Minnesota are seizing on the recent outbreak of vaping-related illnesses and teen nicotine addiction to urge caution on the cannabis front — even as advocates of legalization ramp up their campaign ahead of next year’s legislative session. ‘I hope this slows down the rush by [Gov. Tim Walz] and House Democrats on recreational marijuana,’ said state Sen. Paul Gazelka, R-Nisswa, the majority leader. ‘If they see the correlation, that might at least slow down the process’”
