Hemp Makes Landmark Strides In White Plume Case, Market Growth And Environmental Sustainability

industrial hemp farming bill obamaThe Hemp Industries Association (HIA) and Vote Hemp have announced the dates for the 7thannual Hemp History Week, to be held June 6-12, 2016. This year promises to be an historic time in the movement to legalize hemp farming, as more farmers than ever before are planting hemp in states that have lifted prohibition on the crop. Over half of all U.S. states have lifted the ban on industrial hemp farming at the state level, however federal law still prohibits commercial industrial hemp cultivation due to outdated and inaccurate drug policy.

On March 28, 2016, the United States District Court of South Dakota lifted an injunction that had been placed against Alex White Plume of the Oglala Sioux Tribe, in 2004, which until recently prevented him from ever growing hemp again in his lifetime. This landmark reversal in the court order against Mr. White Plume signifies a pivotal shift in the attitude of federal judges toward industrial hemp cultivation, as the original government allegation against Mr. White Plume’s 2002 industrial hemp crop which resulted in this 14 year long injunction, was that he was “manufacturing and distributing marijuana.” Now that Mr. White Plume’s right to cultivate industrial hemp has been restored, he intends to plant a hemp crop on his land near his home on the Pine Ridge Indian reservation this year.
