SD Governor Threatens Hemp Veto In 2020

Sep 11, 2019 | ,

(KVHT) – South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem is promising to again veto an industrial hemp bill if it’s introduced at next year’s Legislature. Noem wrote why she won’t support legalizing hemp in a commentary in the Wall Street Journal earlier this week. Noem, who comes from a farming and ranching family, said that she would be “happy” to introduce a new cash crop in South Dakota, but she said hemp isn’t it. Noem says she will continue to oppose legalizing industrial hemp until law enforcement can differentiate between hemp and marijuana. Last session, Noem vetoed an industrial hemp bill and the Legislature failed to override her veto, killing the measure for this year.
