ND Man Aims to Become 1st US Hemp Farmer

Monson plans this week to apply to become the nation’s first licensed

The farmer,
school superintendent and state legislator would like to start by

“I’m starting to see that we maybe have a chance,” Monson said. “For a while, it was getting really depressing.”

Always nice to see North Dakotans make national news…
