In northwestern Wisconsin, the St. Croix Chippewa tribe has plans to begin growing industrial hemp for CBD extraction. Considered one of the fastest expanding verticals in the cannabis industry, industrial hemp has the potential to bring economic prosperity to many rural and poorer communities at fractions of the cost of traditional crops. Originally, After being denied permission to begin growing hemp by the state Department of Agriculture, the St. Croix Chippewa tribe sued the state on the grounds that it does not need their permission due to its tribal authority. Winning the lawsuit, the tribe still must abide by the federal requirements but has full authority to commence it's grow operation. The tribe plans on converting previous fish hatcheries enabling them to grow year round, indoors. Although exact timeframes are not specified, being an indoor grow, it wouldn't be a far stretch to think they might begin production before the year is out.
