Hemp Would Be Covered by Grain Protection Requirements if Legal in South Dakota
Industrial hemp would be covered by state grain-warehouse and grain-buyer laws
Industrial hemp would be covered by state grain-warehouse and grain-buyer laws if it becomes legal in South Dakota, a state Public Utilities Commission spokeswoman said Friday.
According to a report at Keloland, the Legislature’s Industrial Hemp Study Committee plans to introduce a bill in January that would permit the growth, production, transportation and processing of industrial hemp and its derivatives in South Dakota by licensed farmers, haulers and processors.
The hemp would need to be at THC levels of three-tenths of one percent or less to be legal.
Lawmakers on the Executive Board gave their blessing Tuesday to accepting the committee’s report.
