      v Tommy Thompson in the Republican primary, as a single-issue agricultural hemp campaign.

      While out collecting ballot signatures, I met Richard Monat, a ho-chunk law prof specializing in treaty rights, and mentioned that the federal regulations governing licensing of hemp farms contained language referencing licenses issued by State or tribal authorities.
