Luis Hummel at his hemp farm in Lanesboro, Minn. "This is war," he said.

LANESBORO – Eagles often soar overhead as Luis Hummel tends to his hemp crop in southeastern Minnesota. Though he has only a few acres located just down the road from the Eagle Bluff Learning Center, what he's hoping to harvest in the fall could provide a multimillion-dollar yield.
