PIERRE, S.D.–South Dakota Farmer’s Union president Doug Sombke says supporters of legalizing industrial hemp in the state are holding “South Dakota Hemp Day” from 3:30–6:30 pm today at the Ramkota Hotel in Pierre.



He says industrial hemp is a natural fit into the crop rotation in the state.


Currently, South Dakota is only one of three states where growing and processing industrial hemp is not legal.
