Governor Kristi Noem says lawmakers who want to legalize industrial hemp in South Dakota are working with her administration on a potential compromise. Last year, Noem vetoed a bill that would have legalized hemp production. But Noem has now set four conditions she want lawmakers to implement into new legislation. Noem says both sides are talking and making progress.
“There will be a cost to taxpayers to stand this program up, and I wanted the legislators to make sure they paid for it. So we are working on language, and I believe that we’ll be finalizing that next week,” Noem said.

College is a big period of adjustment, especially for freshmen who are spending their first extended time away from home. For many, it’s also their first time cooking, grocery shopping, or managing their own time. At Black Hills State University in Spearfish, students and staff say there are ways to make that transition a little easier.
“By taking away some of your study time, you are actually rejuvenating your body and you will do better in your studies just by taking that time away to focus on self-care,” Ashley Pfeiffer, Exercise Science professor said. Black Hills State offers several free programs on campus so that students can stay active and be involved.
