Urge Lawmakers in South Dakota to Support Hemp!
South Dakota is 1 of only 3 states that have not established a hemp pilot program.
In 2019, the South Dakota legislature passed a bill that would have established a hemp pilot program, but Governor Kristi Noem vetoed that bill, and the legislature was a few votes short of overriding her veto. We understand that a similar bill is already being drafted for introduction in 2020. The new bill will respond to changes caused by the 2018 Farm Bill and the Interim Final Rule for hemp recently published by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, but Governor Noem has already signaled that she will veto it.
We need your help now more than ever. If you are a South Dakota resident or business owner, please use our portal to send an email urging your legislators to support legislation establishing a hemp pilot program and permitting the retail sale of hemp-derived CBD. We will make sure Governor Noem gets the message, too.
Our portal makes this super easy, with your legislators already identified and an editable message prepared. Just type in your zip code and the appropriate email or petition will appear. Then, click the “submit” button so that your state legislators and Governor Noem will learn of your support!
Even if you are not from South Dakota, you can help us build our Hemp Supporter army there. Please spread the word by sharing this webpage with your friends, colleagues, customers, and social media contacts in South Dakota.
