Federal agents destroy hemp on Menominee Tribal lands
The Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin says that DEA agents came and destroyed their industrial hemp crop on Friday.
The tribe recently voted to approve recreational marijuana on the reservation.
The tribal attorney, Tim Purdon, calls the action "very troubling", pointing out that recreational marijuana is being sold in store fronts in Denver and Seattle without incident. He says the tribe was growing industrial hemp for research purposes.
