Several weeks ago, we highlighted HB 1008
, which would make South Dakota the 48th state with a hemp program and allow the purchase and sale of CBD. We reminded you that, in 2019, Governor Kristi Noem vetoed a bill
that would have established a hemp program and that her veto was just a few votes away from being overridden. In the time since our update, HB 1008 passed the legislature with overwhelming bipartisan support and reached Governor Noem’s desk. Governor Noem has stated that as long as HB 1008 meets her “guardrails
,” she will sign it. South Dakota Hemp Supporters are encouraged to use our State Action Center
to tell her Governor Noem that HB 1008 does just that and to sign it into law.
