FORT LUPTON, Colo. (AP) - A Fort Lupton plant is starting to test and process Colorado’s hemp harvest, turning it into pulp that can be used to make paper, sugar and biofuels.

The PureVision Technology processing plant in Ft. Lupton is turning Colorado’s newest cash crop into products that are also valuable.

The hemp plant is cannabis without the psychoactive properties. Growing hemp became legal in Colorado last year, along with recreational marijuana.

According to KMGH-TV (https://tinyurl.com/ogf3uh5 ), hemp is still illegal under federal law and processing facilities are hard to find. So far, most processing has been done by hand.
