Katie L. BurkeFeb 21, 2017

Plant biologist George Weiblen was once ridiculed as the "professor of pot," but he never imagined where we'd be now, with marijuana as one of the fastest growing industries in the United States, and hemp as a burgeoning one.

Here, I talk with him about his latest work on the evolution, genetics, and crop science of cannabis.


A brief Storify of the discussion is below.
