Gov. Noem vetoes bill legalizing industrial hemp production

406

South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem on Monday vetoed a bill to legalize industrial hemp production in the state, saying it would make law enforcement’s job more difficult and could be a first step to eventually legalizing recreational marijuana. Noem had previously opposed legalizing hemp this year but had not threatened a veto. She raised a host of objections to the bill as it was being drafted.
