Blogger Takashi reports [1] [jp] on the Second International Congress of Asian Hemp Industry (第2回アジア大麻産業国際会議) held in Donghae (Korea) at the Hangzhong University from the 20th to the 23rd of November, 7 years after the first congress took place. Participants from Japan, China and South Korea [2] [jp] debated the hemp industry in their respective countries and the necessity for new regulation, stressing the importance of creating an Asian “hemp road” which places emphasis on the use of the plant as a textile and a medicine, as well as on its traditional values.
