Federal Raid On Field Of Hemp Was Unjustified, Menominee Say


The Menominee Tribe and the U.S. Department of Justice are at odds over a raid executed by federal agents last Friday on a field of experimental hemp plants.

An attorney representing the tribe says the raid, in which the Drug Enforcement Administration used bulldozers to destroy 30,000 plants on the Menominee Indian Reservation, was unjustified. The U.S. attorney's office, however, said the plants were high-grade marijuana, not hemp.
