     IMPERIAL — The economic and educational benefits to the production of industrial hemp through a potential partnership with Imperial Valley College were discussed during a forum here, Friday afternoon.

    “We are trying to be responsive to our community’s needs,” said IVC Superintendent/President Dr. Martha Garcia. “This is potentially an industry that will lead to a large number of employment opportunities, which ultimately impacts social and economic development.”
