Pine Ridge reservation farmer banned from growing hemp seeks reprieve
By The Associated Press
PINE RIDGE, S.D. — Alex White Plume planted industrial hemp on his Pine Ridge farm more than a decade ago, but never harvested a crop. Now, he says it’s time to grow again.
White Plume, an Oglala Sioux tribal member, wants to grow hemp again on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation thanks to guidelines laid out by the federal Department of Justice in December allowing tribes to decide whether to grow and sell marijuana, South Dakota Public Broadcasting reported earlier this spring.
