ZimmNews – October 3, 2014

Hello ZimmComm Fans:
The ZimmComm Team hopes you’re enjoying our look at life on the agriblogging highway this week. Events include the Verdesian Life Sciences media event, “Tomorrow’s Science Delivering Today’s Returns” in Los Alamos, NM; World Dairy Expo courtesy of New Holland; Canadian Farm Writers Federation Annual Mtg. courtesy of CaseIH and New Holland Blogger Days in Turin, Italy.
The legalization of marijuana for medicinal purposes has become a hot topic as more states consider legislation to make it available on some kind of legal basis. We receive quite a few press releases from the hemp industry so we thought we’d pose this question for our ZimmPoll: When do you think medicinal marijuana will become a major cash crop? We’ve got pretty good response so far!
Here are some interviews from this week you might have missed. Many more will be posted in coming days from all these events too!
