Rapid City event promoter Jeremy Briggs announced the scheduling of “Hemp Hoe Down 10” today.
The event will be held, as it has for eight of its past nine years, at the Elkview Campground, north at I-90, Exit 37, east of Sturgis. Its dates are Thursday through Saturday, May 13-15.
Briggs says, “For the tenth straight year the Hemp Hoe Down has been the only hemp advocacy gathering in South Dakota. I think that’s an odd thing to be able to say in a state that could profit enormously from the addition of hemp to the choices farmers have in choosing marketable crops.”
According to Briggs, the Hemp Hoe Down typically features workshops or seminars in “sustainable” or “green” lifestyle and product choices. “But of course,” he says, “we also have offered, and will continue to offer a lineup of musical performers unchallenged for quality in South Dakota by anything aside from some Sturgis Rally venues.”

This is good to see, but when is Obama going to legalise hemp? Then again, when is he going to close Guantanamo Bay?
