Marijuana in hemp?

Can I plant marijuana plants in the middle of ordinary hemp or will they be pollinated? Will this decrease potency?
By the way, people grow a lot in Slovenia.

Celje, Slovenia

Marijuana planted in a hemp field will be pollinated by the hemp. The buds will be potent but will not yield much because they will be well seeded. The seeds will have dubious potency.
