Lakota hemp homes

Since 1997, the Lakota Sioux at Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota have passed multiple pro-hemp resolutions and declarations.This year, the tribe sowed about two acres by an already growing field of wild hemp. Since Native reservations are considered as independent nations for many purposes, the DEA has made no official reaction.
The Lakota tribe is also receiving $5 million from US feds, to replace two dozen homes recently destroyed by tornadoes. They intend to use part of that money for hemp-based buildings.
