US SD: Ex-US Attorney Wants Feds to Allow Hemp on SD

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 07:00:00 GMT

Rapid City Journal, 31 Jul 2015 - FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The former U.S. attorney in North Dakota decided to take on his former employer by filing a motion Thursday to lift an 11-year-old federal injunction that prevents a man from growing industrial hemp on a South Dakota reservation. Timothy Purdon, who now works for a Minneapolis-based law firm, contacted the U.S. attorney's office in South Dakota several months ago in an effort to allow Oglala Sioux Nation member Alex White Plume to produce hemp, as the tribe legalized the crop in 1998 and last year's federal farm bill allowed hemp to be grown through state agriculture departments and college research stations.
