Native tribes in South Dakota have plans to grow hemp

Tribes in North Dakota have already started growing hemp for 2 years. There are also tribes in Minnesota that have industrial hemp farms.

There have been dozens of tribes in North Dakota that have submitted their plans for hemp growing to the USDA for approval.

Many of these tribes have hundreds of acres to work with and this can be a great opportunity for them to add millions in revenue. 

Once South Dakota approves hemp farming we can expect to see a booming market that will help out the native population.
