Attorney wants to legalize hemp on Standing Rock reservation


PIERRE An attorney on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation wants residents to decide whether the tribe should legalize industrial hemp, but the tribal chairman is concerned about legalizing the plant without the federal government's blessing.

Attorney Chase Iron Eyes has been collecting signatures to put the decision before voters Sept. 30. He says hemp would be a boon to the economy of the reservation that straddles North Dakota and South Dakota.
