Hemp to be Sown in South Dakota!

Lakota Sioux recently won a tribal council vote allowing industrial hemp to be cultivated on the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota. 
It is believed that hemp cultivation could bring financial independence to the poverty stricken reservation. A recent project by the Community Land-Use Association has shown that hemp may be transformed into brick, stucco and flooring to create incredibly weather resistant housing.Hemp cultivation will not begin on the reservation until federal hearings are held this spring. The Navajo Nation was turned down for similar hemp propagation but advocates are hopeful for the Lakota Sioux.
