Q

I have read that marijuana and hops are closely related. With the legalization of marijuana on the rise in the United States, do you believe that it will soon begin to be added to beer? If so, how, and what impact would it have?

A
Let’s get one thing clear, legalization of marijuana has absolutely nothing to do with this topic. Seriously. I can’t believe this question is being asked by a resident of the greater-Portland area!
