Notes and updates from Don Robison, Seed Administrator with the Indiana State Chemist and Seed Commissioner
URGENT REQUEST: Latitude / Longitude
Indiana Hemp Growers,
Please remember, if your coordinates are off, the crop is marijuana and the Indiana State Police have every right and the full authority to treat it as such. We are getting excessively many coordinates that are way off. One set of coordinates today was 15 miles off, we confirmed the coordinates on our spreadsheet are what were given to us. State Police got involved but did not make arrests.
It is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to have all coordinates updated with our office, immediately upon any changes. It is also YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to make sure that the coordinates you have given us are correct and we have those for every grow, storage, processing site.
This is the year to work out these details, and in many areas, the hemp research pilot program is going well, but this particular area is not up to par. Please confirm again your coordinates and make sure you give us exact, center of the field latitude / longitude coordinates for every grow site, storage site, processing site that you have. Please send us all of the exact coordinates for every hemp area, to:
firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
A couple of quick updates on the hemp front
Have a great day!
