Nez Perce Tribe announces industrial hemp plan

October 18, 2020

The Nez Perce Tribe is seeking member approval for a proposed amendment to the Nez Perce Tribal Code that will establish a regulatory framework for producing industrial hemp on reservation land under terms of the 2018 Farm Bill.

With approval of the amendment and acceptance of the plan by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Nez Perce Tribe will self-regulate the cultivation of hemp without state jurisdiction. Idaho prohibits hemp and all other cannabis products.

Nez Perce Tribal Executive Committee Law and Order Subcommittee Chairman Arthur Broncheau issued this statement:

"Due to its versatility and organic nature, industrial hemp has been identified as a potential avenue for economic development on the reservation. Because there is tremendous growth in sectors of the economy that rely on hemp, the Tribe believes hemp is an emerging market that can accomplish economic self-sufficiency and increase jobs in our region."

"It is important that there are proper laws in place to regulate this new industry," Broncheau said. "Once a final hemp ordinance is approved by the USDA and codified by the tribe, the tribe will work on implementation of the regulatory framework. The ultimate goal will be ensuring that there is a clear and consistent process in place for regulating growers on the reservation."
