With Wisconsin returning to the fold of states where industrial hemp cultivation is legal with the passage of 2017 Wisconsin Act 100 in Nov. 2017, hemp-related events are starting to spring up around the state.

The St. Croix Chippewa Indians of Wisconsin along with Shimadzu Corporation & MJM Strategy are hosting a St. Croix Hemp Symposium later this month, the first Wisconsin hemp event since the 2017 legalization vote.

The event will be held at two locations, Danbury, Wisconsin on Jan. 22, 2018, and Turtle Lake on Jan. 23, 2018. Admission is free and the event is open to the public. Register here if you are planning to attend.
